Design, supply, and installation of track and rigid catenary for a 2·2 km elevated extension of Line 1 north from San Isidro to a multimodal bus, taxi, and park-and-ride interchange at Villa Zaíta, are the contents of this US$13·9m contract. May 2023 is the determined date for completion and it is ready for testing to begin. The extension is expected to carry 10 000 passengers/h.
A contract with the US $6·9m value for renewal covers three years of maintenance of overhead electrification, track, and workshop equipment on the 22 km elevated Line 2 and its 5·7 km of depot tracks.
At the moment TSO and CIM are finalizing work on the extension of Line 2 to ITSE and Tocumen International Airport.
According to Gilles Philibert, TSO International Director, and TCP Rail CEO: “Our teams have already successfully delivered the equipment for lines 1 and 2 and will use their experience and know-how for this new project.”
“TSO has been involved in the construction and maintenance of the Panama Metro since 2011. This new project illustrates our desire to position ourselves as a major player in the 2040 Master Plan launched by Metro de Panamá, which includes the construction of eight new lines,” said Orso Vesperini, Managing Director, International & Major Projects at TSO’s parent company NGE Group.
