Panama Metro tunels under the Canal

Friday, February 14, 2020


A new metro line for Panama City will run through a tunnel bored beneath the interoceanic canal to reach western suburbs, rather than passing over the canal alongside a planned new bridge as was originally anticipated as part of a broader $4 billion infrastructure project.

Officials opted for a single tunnel option, divided in half and 13 meters in diameter, the Associated Press reports.
