CHILE: A public consultation is being held for the proposed construction of a tramway linking the centres of La Serena and Coquimbo. Tenders are due to be called in the second half of this year, and work could begin by the end of the year, with opening expected in 2021-22.

The US$350m project envisages a 22 km tram line with around 30 stops, giving a journey time of around 50 min between the two cities.
