The Mexican federal government is considering building a commuter rail line in southeast state Campeche.
According to the finance ministry (SHCP), the infrastructure, communications, and transport ministry (SICT) requested 31mn pesos (US$1.5mn) to carry out feasibility and pre-investment studies for the 20.7km line in the municipality of Campeche.
The link would use existing infrastructure.
As published by BNamericas, there are eight other rail projects under consideration by the federal government.
These include the Naucalpan-Buenavista link, the Xalapa metropolitan train, the Istmo de Tehuantepec passenger line, and the Téllez-AIFA suburban train that would run from Hidalgo to Mexico state.
The stretch from Tapachula to Puerto de Chiapas is also being considered as are the Nuevo Laredo-Monterrey, the García-Saltillo and the Colima-Puerto de Manzanillo lines.
