CIM provides its expertise for the extension of metro line 1 in Panama

Testing before commissioning

On Sunday 21 January 2024, the first trial runs of trains without passengers took place on the extension of line 1 of the Panama metro. TCP Rail, a subsidiary of CIM and TSO, contributed with its expertise in the design, supply and installation of the track and catenary.

Established in Panama since 2010, TCP Rail participated in the construction of this metro line and is responsible for its maintenance since its inauguration in 2014. The line links the south and north of Panama City over a distance of around 16 kilometers, from the Albrook national bus station to San Isidro station, carrying more than 240,000 passengers every day. With this extension, the line continues for more than 18 kilometers to the north of the city, from San Isidro station to Villa Zaita station.

The testing marks the end of the equipment’s on track installation phase and allows comprehensive verifications to be carried out on the safety conditions and functionalities of the railway system. It has been successfully completed and the commissioning is scheduled for April 2024.
