Rodrigo de Araya is an elevated metro station on the Line 5 of the Santiago Metro, in Santiago, Chile. The station consists of an elliptical cylindrical structure enclosing the side platforms and tracks. Staircases jut out from the tubular structure and lead to the concourse level, which is located below the viaduct deck.

Currently the platforms are being enlarged from 108 m (354 ft) to 135 m (443 ft),[1] to support seven-car trains. The renovation project includes the use of tensile roofing structures to cover the newer portion of the station, as well as the open portion of the original station.
