Three companies are vying for the concession to build a 200-mile interoceanic railway in northern Costa Rica.
The railway route would cover in 4 hours the distance from Limón, on the Caribbean coast, to Guanacaste, on the Pacific. The project, valued at $16 million, is intended to transport goods.
The bidding process office reported that among the three companies one has an advantage for filing a more complete contract offer.
The economy minister of Costa Rica, Walter Ramos, said the railway would increase Costa Rica’s potential to become a distribution hub for all Latin America.
