Gerdau supplies steel for building the Lima subway

Press release

About 30 metric tons of Gerdau steel will be used in the construction of line two of Lima, Peru's subway, a
project of the country's government with an investment of US$ 610 million. This second phase of this
project includes the construction of ten new stations, plus two mega bridges of 240 meters high each over
the Rimac River and over the Vía de Evitamiento, one of the main highways of the Peruvian capital. Gerdau's
