The deal encompasses the 24.2km east-west Line 2, which will link Lauro de Freitas Avenue and the city's airport with Bonocô in the city centre, as well as the 5.6km eastern section of Line 1 between Acesso Norte and Pirajá. The two lines will intersect at Bonocô.

The contract also includes preparations for the extension of Line 1 to Águas Claras.

Construction is expected to take three-and-a-half years to complete, and CCR will operate the network for 27 years.
