Santo Domingo. – The Dominican Government today announced the construction of the third Metro (subway) line, to run from La 17 Bridge, across the Ozama river to the 14-kilometer marker on the Mella highway, next to San Luis township and the San Isidro Airbase.

Santo Domingo East mayor Juan de los Santos made the announcement Wednesday, and affirmed that it’s a day of rejoicing for the province, "because it means the start of a new era in transportation and communication."

"President Danilo Medina has authorized us to make this announcement today on the Metro’s third line, which will connect the San Luis municipal district with Santo Domingo and the National District," de los Santos said in a press conference.

let me explain this like a 5 years old child.

Imagine that you need to deliver something from Villa mella a Los alcarrizos back and forward WITHOUT having your own car or having a metro.

it simply would take the WHOLE DAY and 8 pasajes publicos..So I would call it efficiency and economy

Of course you could replace that with a Mule as proposed from the erudito from Gurabo.

By the way, I haven't hear the solution proposed by guillermo moreno el ladron, for the transportation problems in Santo Domingo.

Can you refresh our memory please?

PS


This is NOT a Third Line this is just continuing with the Second Lined that was TRUNCATED from the original projection because of Lie-onel's Stealing and Historic Deficit.

I guess they are now going to Divide the Two Lines by 2 to say there are really Four; you KNOW how the PURPLE Propaganda Machine works!

Ms. Vickey I know you were Dropped on your Head when you were born but here goes anyway:


1. The METRO doesn't go to Los Alcarrizos, that was also TRUNCATED by the PURPLE Thief in Charge,

2. You are not allowed to Carry Pacakges on the METRO so your aguacate stand can't be supplied using Lie-onel's USELESS Magic Carpet!



So IMAGINE something else Moradito!

Will they use this metro to get to the Jobs they don't have?..... ....or maybe they will use the Metro when they are looking for an Education. That does not exist in the dr...........but it like the dr is on the Right Track (Metro Track) ...... The drug business is doing well, lots of cheap tee-shirts factory, And now with Haitians long gone their will be many jobs on the Farms for the young Dominicans who are hungry for Work............ Choo choo....... All aboard next stop the cheap tee-shirt factory....... If your in the drug business the stop after is Rikers Island.

President Medina begins Santo Domingo Beltway

President Danilo Medina, accompanied by Public Works Minister Gonzalo Castillo began the construction of what will become the Santo Domingo Bypass or Beltway yesterday, Tuesday 18 June. The first phase of the new avenue, costing an estimated US$95 million, will be constructed by Consorcio Compreica-Alba Sanchez, represented at the ceremony by engineer Hector Then.

The new roadway will link the Port of Haina with the Mella Highway at the Boca Chica intersection, bypassing Santo Domingo, to Km 23 of the Duarte Highway. The journey will take an estimated 75 minutes, leading to fuel savings and environmental benefits.

Castillo said that the first stage would be finished by December 2014, serving the communities of Haina, El Cajuilito, Monte Adentro, La Pared, Palave, Caballona, Lecheria, Hato Nuevo and Pedro Brand. The second phase will link the Duarte Highway with Boca Chica.

this is great news, a great city is not built in a day, it takes time, am sure when new york started building the dozens of lines it has 100 years ago it ran into the same criticism, and look at new york today, this will be a great improvement to everything in santo domingo.


students and worker can reach their destination faster, less stress, more time for productivity

i cant name any great successful city with a crappy infrastructure, so thats proof enough proof that this is a step in the right direction

Some reports have put the budget for the completed highway as high as US$325 million.

The second phase linking the Duarte Highway with Boca Chica would be completed in February 2016.

Castillo said that once the highway is ready, around 30,000 vehicles would use the road, in addition to 320,000 commuters per day.


Says josean how interesting "320,000 commuters per day" much more than Two Billion Dollar METRO for only "US$325 million!"
