The Mexican government has published an international tender for the construction of a 210-kilometre high-speed rail line between Mexico City and Queretaro.

Mexico’s Ministry of Communications and Transport (SCT) launched the competition this week. The Mexican government expects the project to begin this year and be ready for passenger service by mid 2017.

The 300 km/h corridor will reduce travel times to and from the cities by two hours and create 20,000 direct and 41,000 indirect jobs throughout its construction.
