AMLO presses ahead with Mexico City-Toluca interurban train

The Mexican government will work against the clock next year to finish the 93bn-peso (US$4.6bn) Mexico City-Toluca interurban train

It is one of the few projects that President Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO) took over and continued from his predecessor Enrique Peña Nieto.  

The 58km passenger line will connect Mexico City with Toluca in Mexico state. It is divided into three stretches and will have two terminals and five stations. 

On Sunday, AMLO said on Twitter that the line would be inaugurated in December next year and he also addressed the issue of delays. 

“The companies in charge of the work are complying,” he said, adding that Mexico state governor Alfredo del Mazo and Mexico City mayor Claudia Sheinbaum were working closely together to finish the project. 

It kicked off in 2014 but has suffered several construction delays, in addition to cost hikes that have seen its budget triple.

According to BNamericas records, stretch three in the west of Mexico City is the only part left to be completed. It includes the Vasco de Quiroga and Santa Fe stations, in addition to a 21ha expansion of the Observatorio metro station in order to convert it into a terminal. 

This year have seen the Mexico City government award contracts for the stations and two cable-stayed bridges.
