It's not looking good to be honest. Dwindling oil revenue, a weak peso getting progresivelly weaker, and a government that has had its political reform inertia stopped in its tracks after the sad case of the 43 disappeared.

Fingers crossed I'm wrong.

If we don't get the High Speed Rail during Nieto's administration we will definitely get it from the winning PAN party in 2018 when they win elections. After all it's them who wanted for time and transparency. Perhaps maybe they will scrap the High Speed Rail all together and PAN will introduce the Maglev Train to Mexico? Wishful thinking?

I would say it's not the desire for transparency (is this bad? It's typically considered a positive in most places in the world), but rather the price of oil that is the culprit.

Actually most people found the decision to be responsible as the prices of oil have gone down. This affects not only Mexico, but many other countries as well.

I personally think the gov could've taken a better decision even though it is not completely cancelled.

I do not know ANY country that has NO passenger rails system than jumps straight to HSR. Not ONE. All of the countries that tried to leapfrog have ended up with the most modern intercity land transport being... nice buses.

Sadly, Africa, with its more modest ambitions, will have quality rail passenger transport way ahead of Latin America (look at developments in places like Kenya, Nigeria and Ethiopia). I still do not understand why Mexico does not focus on building a conventional 160 km/h line to Queretaro. It will still be faster than land-based transport alternatives, and could even be built by upgrading existing tracks.

Anyway, this has been quite a mockery.

Anything involve Maglev is wishful thinking.

Think about 2 of the technology foundations like Japan and Germany still don't have one. (Japan is already building one, but it will take at least another 10 years to complete in first phase).

Think about the economical mammoth like China. They just scrap the plan to build the commercial one (after having a short airport rail link one running for years).

And those 3 countries are rich as ****. Now look at Mexico and tell me you expect them to have Maglev running.

I guess you're right. By the time PAN has presidency which is in 3 years they will probably continue this project. I have a feeling that they wanted this project to have their name on it instead of the PRI party who currently has presidency. We'll just have to see then. I am still optimistic.

I would also like to add that this kind of thing happened during the PANs presidency through 2000-2006 when they tried to get a new airport for Mexico City and then it was cancelled and now the PRI got Mexico City the airport it deserves. After all it will be the 3rd most important airport in the world (allegedly). I think for these kind of projects it is better to wait.

Don't try to come here and make a joke when you use google translate and it translates to something that makes no sense. Now that's something to laugh about.

This is not the Latin American forums. Here we speak English. Go find a better translator and then run back and tell me
