Metal Mesh Falls On Power Line - Metro System Knocked Out Of Service

Infrastructure UpgradesService on the new Panama Metro mass transportation system was disrupted this morning, Monday, 12 May, after a metal mesh fell onto an overhead power line that supplies power to the system, said Roberto Roy, the Secretary of the Metro.

Roy said the incident occurred at the new Metro station being built in the area of El Ingenio, forcing them to temporarily stop service, for safety reasons.

He said there was no failure or damage in the transportation system, as had been announced.

He said it was an unfortunate accident which should be resolved as soon as possible by their technical staff.

It was reported that two trains were stranded and riders were evacuated from the overhead rails to the Metro station at 12 de Octubre, in a joint operation by the National Police and the Fire Department of Panama. (Panama America)
