I hope so. It's time Canada gets a high-speed rail too

http://www.highspeedrailcanada.com/

It would be awesome to take a train in Ontario to travel to Cancun for the spring break.

Yeah, but a decade is too much time. Mexico showed us that it is possible now. We can do it too

Is there A planned time-frame for the project inluded in the tender?
Or did authorities leave the time-frame up to companies/teams?

Good thing, Mexican authorities kept it sensible and chose An exsisting tracksecurity standard that is -finally- working and relatively stable.

yes, in October 15th we have the opening of proposals, that day we will know the date of adjudication, soon after is the signature of the contract, construction begins the day after. The time frame stablish that by 2nd half of 2017 must be completed.

so by the end of this year (november-december) construction of the High Speed Line begins.

btw here is a schedule of the financing for every specific aspect:

Couple videos explaining ERTMS levels and ETCS security systems and all the infrastructure required.
In Mexico will be implemented level 2.

There will be three main factors to choose the winning project: cost, quality and delivery time.

It will integrate the whole railway equipment and civil works because of the high technology of a high-speed train and many miles. The cost of the project, having competing companies is going to go for the best deal, and in this package public resources will be cared to make it as cheap as possible.

The characteristics indicated in the tender can not be moved unless there is consensus among the participants in the setting of time or technical issues.

The ticket cost of U$23 could fall because they want to be competitive with foreign transport; however, until there is an adjudication there won't be certainty about the figures, because currently they are only projected figures.

The cost of around U$3.5 billion anticipated for the project could vary depending on the proposals submitted by the firms.

The German Siemens "ready" to participate in the process of building comprehensive High Speed ​​Rail (HSR) Mexico-Queretaro, with a consortium of companies that integrates; and one of its strengths is the internal ability to obtain financing, said Vice President of Infrastructure, Markus Mildner.

The work will cost around $3.5 billions and the Secretariat of Communications and Transportation (SCT) had assured to be held with federal budget; however, the general manager of Multimodal and Rail Transport, Pablo Suarez, said last Friday that was able to rely on a system of public-private partnership.

"We were expecting the bidding because it is a project in which we are very interested. In our case, the signaling, trains and electrification, where we have experience, we can do it without a hassle because we have the support of Siemens Financial Services" he said. Our partners would be responsible for civil works.

To date, the company ensures that its trains have traveled over 300 million kilometers in Spain, Russia, China, Germany, Turkey and England, where the constant has been providing cutting edge technology and comfort for users. He said in an interview that one of the best examples of their participation in the sector is that its trains are used on the ICE (Intercity Express) in Germany, which is a transport system that reaches a speed of 300 kilometers per hour and allows you to connect to the cities of Berlin, Hamburg and Cologne, and Denmark, France and Switzerland, among others.

"Winning the bid with the group conformed open the door to participate in similar processes in Latin America, while Mexico will be clear that spearheaded the matter," he added. The new train would begin operations in November 2017

I don't think this will ever get beyond being a proposal.

Is not a proposal, it was a proposal several years ago, actually is an Executive Project with all feasibility studies done and approved, with a budget for the next 4 years and in the phase of tendering.

The proposals are the ones the consortiums are going to do next months.

Yes, the executive projects of every aspect are already done and included in the tendering for the consortiums to conduct them.

Construction firms in Mexico are 100% capable of the civil works, what Mexico does not have is the manufacturing capability, nor the technology to implement the high speed railway systems and the rolling stock, nor the experience, so that is why the international tendering.

Why in a single comprehensive tendering? only because international firms requested this way, so the coordination with construction firms can be flexible and efficient.

Some people worried because the TAV (HSR) is going to pass near their towns but indeed is not that way, for example, in the case of Vista Hermosa in San Juan del Rio, the old freight railway has not the geometry for a high speed line service, so the HSR is going to be built far away that area in a straight new railway.



Anyways in sensible zones there will be acoustic barriers to moderate aerodynamic turbulences and noise.

For me, the advantage of traveling via rail over plane is that it takes you directly to the city center. I don't see the purpose of building a station so far away from the city.

there wont be a station in that town, is direct from MC to Queretaro and the station of Queretaro is in the center of the city.

in San Juan del Rio some neighbors were worried because they thought the train would run just beside their homes but that is not the case.
