Tuesday, November 16, 2010
With an estimated investment of $50 to $60 million, the train would connect Aurora International Airport with the city of Antigua in 12 minutes, covering about 22 linear km.
A feasibility study indicates an estimated cost of $770 million for building a Metro that will loop through 20 kilometers between the North and South of the capital city, a project which will be put out to tender in 2017.
Through means of a concession or a private public partnership, the new transport system for passengers and cargo train requires an investment of $650 million.
Studies are being carried out on the viability of a Japanese loan to finance a railway connecting the western zone with the Panamanian capital.
The feasibility study which determines that the electric train in the greater metropolitan area is viable was carried out by a Spanish company, and paid for by the Spanish government as part of the marketing efforts made by railway companies, also of the same nationality.
