2nd subway line gets government funds, official says –

SANTO DOMINGO.-The government allocated monthly funds to complete the Santo Domingo Metro’s second line and make it operational by year end.

Transport Reform Office Assistant director Leonel Carrasco affirmed that president Danilo Medina makes extraordinary efforts to open the new line despite the current difficult times. “I don’t have the approved amount yet, what’s important is the allocation.

“I can assure you that this decision gave us a break, because we were working slowly and now everything pending has been invigorated,” Carrasco said, noting that the plastic “swipe” cards will be changed to magnetic and disposable cardboard, to expedite service.

Stations lack just elevators

Carrasco said some stations just need elevators, termination or details in areas and have received 36 of the 45 cars for the first leg of the second line, from 9 kilometers on the Duarte highway to the bridge La 17.
