The future station will be located at the intersection of Manuel Antonio Matta, Las Torres and Lo Cruzat avenues, in the commune of Quilicura. It is 0.84 kilometers away from the station located in the surroundings of Plaza de Quilicura and 1.01 kilometers from the station located in Av. Manuel Antonio Matta with Senator Jaime Guzmán.Al just like the extension of Line 2, the commissioning of the extension of Line 3 is scheduled for 2023.
