Commuter Train To Alajuela Promised For Next Year

tren-3-500x300As the commuter train readies to roll to Cartago, Presidenta Laura Chinchilla promises a San José – Alajuela run by next year.

The Presidenta said on Monday that work on the 11 kilometres of track between San José and city of the Mangos (Alajuela) will be cleared and ready for use by next year. The Alajuela route will pass through Heredia, though specific details were not made public.

The project is expected to cost US$6 million dollars and financed by the Ministerio de Obras Públicas y Transportes and the Municipalidad de Alajuela and carried out by the  Instituto Costarricense de Ferrocarriles (INCOFER).

INCOFER president, Miguel Carabaguíaz – who has been at the controls of the rebuilding of the commuter train line with the first line between San Pedro and Pavas back in 2005 – said first is the cleaning of the track and followed by the construction of the bridges and embankments.
