The Mexican transport and communications ministry SCT is considering three options for construction of the Mexico-Querétaro high-speed rail link that will be tendered in 2013, SCT Minister Gerardo Ruiz announced in a press conference.
"The Mexico-Querétaro train is a dream that we can achieve. If they managed to build trains in the last century, I don't see why we can't achieve it in the 21st century," said Ruiz.
Options for the train include using the infrastructure of the existing cargo rail line, building a parallel railway or modernizing the existing route and creating an additional right of way which doesn't impact the existing cargo line, said the minister.
According to the minister, an executive study for the project is currently being carried out to decide which would be the lowest cost option with the greatest benefits.
