Panama launches $1.6 billion construction of Central America’s first metro

Tuesday, February 15, 2011

Construction on the first metro in Central America began in Panama City, a $1.6 billion project that will open to riders in 2014.

The subway -- the ninth in Latin America but the first in Central America -- is being built by an international consortium that includes France's Alstom, Brazil's Norberto Odebrecht and Spain's Fomento de Construcciones y Contratas.

The government plans four subway lines in all, one of them over the Panama Canal.
