SENER to conduct technical studies for Monterrey commuter train in Mexico

(08/10/2020) 



 The new railway system is expected to use 62 kilometres of existing tracks, and will have 27 stations. It will combine passenger and cargo transport, the average speed of the passenger system being between 40 and 50 km/h. The demand is estimated at 250,000 passengers per day.

The Monterrey commuter train will serve the cities of Apodaca, San Nicolás de los Garza, Monterrey, San Pedro Garza García, Santa Catarina and García, spanning the most important metropolitan area of the Mexican state of Nuevo León.

SENER's work in Mexico is divided into two packages: field work (geometric and topographic survey, hydrological study, identification and evaluation of preparatory work, geological and geotechnical studies of the main rail and railway crossings, as well as environmental feasibility); and the preliminary project (general description and railway engineering for passenger and freight transport).
