PROBLEMS DERIVED FROM OPERATING THE METRO IN SANTIAGO
This paper deals with the problems arisen once a section of the Metropolitan Rapid Transit System was put into operation, the provisions adopted to solve them and the proposed general treatments. These problems are grouped into circulation problems, parking problems, and other problems. Circulation problems refer to congestion in the area of Salvador Station of the Metro system, and end of the section under operation which is working as a terminal-station due to car users' arrivals to commute and to the establishment of feeding lines. With regard to parking problems, there has been a control system based upon parking cards. With reference to other problems, emphasis has been placed on the need of realizing simultaneously the eastbound extension of the Metro (its construction was considered to be realized some years later) and on the opening of the new roadway under construction.
