Mexico launches international tender for $3.3bn high-speed railway

31 Jul 14 The Mexican Ministry of Communications & Transport is inviting international teams to bid for a high-speed rail scheme.

Cost of the scheme has previously been put at US$3.3bn (£1.95bn).

The 210km line will link Mexico City to Querétaro in the north-west of the country.

The trains will be able to travel at speeds of up to 300km/h, saving two hours on current journey times. The line will have the capacity to carry 23,000 passengers a day.

Some 20,000 direct jobs are expected to be generated during the construction project.

The aim is for the line to come into operation in 2017.
