Oct 06, 2018 710

Texas Central, which is developing the high-speed train, has appointed Italian construction company Salini Impregilo – operating in the US with Lane Construction, to lead the consortium that will build the Texas passenger line. The high-speed train will connect Houston and North Texas.  Under the investor-led project, a 200mph train will connect the state’s largest population and economic regions in 90 minutes, with a stop in the Brazos Valley.

Salini Impregilo will be responsible for all civil construction work, including viaducts, embankments and drainage. The Limited Notice to Proceed (LNTP) agreement allows the project’s design-build participants to take up the front-end engineering and design of the train’s civil infrastructure. Other services will include optimising execution approaches, strategies and logistics, as well as developing construction costs and schedule estimates.
