Train operator to get funds for expansion to Alajuela

Casa Presidencial said Tuesday that it was sending to the legislature a special budget request to support routing the valley train to Alajuela Centro.

Under the plan, the Instituto Costarricense de Ferrocarriles will get 1.5 billion colons, about $3 million, to finish the job. This is the last link in the project that provides train service from Cartago to Alajuela.

The announcement also said that the San José-San Carlos road would receive 30 billion colons, about $60 million.
