“Our participation on the Panama Metro project highlights CEMEX’s
constant efforts to provide tailor-made building solutions to its

which CEMEX operates. We are sure that the Metro will serve as a
milestone in the city’s growth in the medium and long term,” says Ramon
Pizá, President of CEMEX in Panama.
The Metro line will be both above and below ground and will require the

National Bus Station in Albrook with the Los Andes Commercial Center in
the northern metropolitan area of Panama City. The Metro line is
expected to have an initial capacity of 15,000 people per hour in 2014,
and is expected to benefit close to 40,000 users by 2035, according to
public statements released by the Government of Panama.
