High-speed Train in Texas
The long journey of the USA’s first high-speed train.
The future of mobility in Texas is the high-speed train that will link Houston and Dallas. A cutting-edge railway that will cover the trip between Houston and Dallas/Fort Worth in less than 90 minutes, with trains every 30 minutes and an intermediate stop in Brazos Valley, the home of one of the most popular universities in the United States of America.
Construction of the work, in which the Webuild Group will take part, will require an overall investment of around 20 billion dollars but, once in operation, the train’s impact will be enormous. In its first 25 years of operation, this infrastructure will boost the Texan economy by 36 billion dollars, directly creating 17,000 jobs in its construction and another 20,000 in allied industries.
A unique enterprise with a catchment area of at least 13 million people. Many Texan citizens live less than an hour away from the three stops provided along the route.
