Mexico’s SCT inks agreement for US$448mn Monterrey metro line 3

Construction of a new line 3 for Mexican city Monterrey metro will cost 5.7bn pesos (US$448mn), said Gerardo Ruiz, head of the transport and communications ministry (SCT), during the signing of the project agreement with the Nuevo León state government.

The SCT and the Nuevo León state government have signed a collaboration agreement to develop the project, with construction of the first phase expected to start this year, said Ruiz.

The new 7.5km, nine-station line will run between the city’s Macroplaza and the metropolitan hospital in the east of the state capital. Three feeder bus routes of 34km will also serve the line. Environmentally friendly buses and 17 bus rapid transit vehicles will be operated along the route.

Construction is expected to wrap in August 2015 and, once complete, the new line will benefit 280,000 users each day, according to a release from the Nuevo León state government.

Monterrey is the second financial and manufacturing city in Mexico, accounting for almost 9% of GDP. The English paper, Financial Times, recently included it in a list of the world’s top ten up and coming cities.
