Panama – Construction of Panama metro line 1

Panama City - Panama
Railway track laying

First metro line in Panama and in Central America!

The 16 km line includes 10 km in elevated section and 6 km in tunnel, as well as a complete train stabling and maintenance depot.

Line 1 extension (L1B) as well as additional stabling track (L1C) were completed in the years following the line 1 commercial service starting date.

After the success of Santo Domingo metro line 1 in the Dominican Republic, the first metro line in Panama gave the opportunity for TSO to comfort its regional implantation and skills.
