In Mexico there is not anymore a monopoly in the railway sector after the reform in february, so no single concessionaire is able to interfere if the government acquires the railway right in their area.

The Mexico City Metropolitan Area (dark grey on the map), which occupies the Valley of Mexico, extends well beyond the northern boundary of the Federal District and includes many municipalities in the State of Mexico. The two administrations (the Federal District and the State of Mexico) have to work closely together in order to coordinate actions in the Metropolitan Area, which had a population in 2010 of 20.1 million.


Quote:
Toluca, the capital of the State of México, is Mexico’s 4th largest urban area, and a fast-growing industrial city in its own right, with a 2010 population of 1.8 million.

Toluca’s airport (the “Licenciado Adolfo López Mateos International Airport”) is mainly used by low-cost carriers like Interjet, Volaris and Aeroméxico Connect as an alternative to using the Mexico City International Airport, which is more expensive and operating at close to capacity. Passenger traffic through Toluca airport has grown rapidly, from 145,000 passengers in 2002 to a peak of almost 4 million in 2008, before falling back to about 1 million passengers in 2012.

Not surprisingly, the Mexico City-Toluca highway is one of Mexico’s busiest major routes, linking the Federal District via Toluca (see map) to western Mexico.

The Mexico-Toluca Intercity Train at 160km/h to improve the two major transportation issues in this area:

The near saturation of Mexico City International Airport
The very busy (and often slow) highway between Mexico City and Toluca

The Ministry of Communications and Transport (SCT) signed an agreement with the Government of the Federal District on reallocation of resources as of U$38 million to the program of the Intercity Passenger Train Toluca-Mexico City.

So the city government should coordinate their participation with the federal transportation project, in this case the construction of double track railway departing from output tunnels on the Mexico-Toluca highway with a station in Santa Fe and a multimodal centre in the Observatorio terminal station.

After winning the bid to provide advisory services, control and monitoring of civil engineering, electrical engineering, purchase of rolling stock and review of all the information generated by the construction of the Mexico-Toluca Intercity Train, the swiss based SGS certification company is going to deploy in Mexico a center of technological development for the rail industry to meet American markets.

"I'm here to prepare an important team like we have in Spain and Germany, for trains benchmarking. In the next six months we will provide significant progress, "said in an interview the company's president for Mexico, José Valdés.

On 5 August, the Secretariat of Communications and Transportation (SCT) ruled in favor of SGS for the bidding process referred. The financial proposal was chosen by U$62 millions.

"Our responsibility is that along with the SCT we can get this train done in quality, time and cost"
