12/04/2018 – COMSA has been awarded the contract for a double-track section that will connect the port of Veracruz with the adjacent town of Santa Fe. Through the expansion of this railway infrastructure, the construction company will help to enhance the competitiveness of the equipment and optimize its operations.
The contract involves the construction of nearly three kilometres long branch line, equipped with concrete sleepers, which will run through uninhabited areas in order to reduce the number of accidents and obstructions resulting from freight trains passing through the city of Veracruz. It also includes clearing work, ballast supply and additional civil engineering works.
At present, the Port of Veracruz has exceeded its manoeuvring capacity. The new railway connection will therefore provide a way of communication to the north of the country, will decongest the entry and exit of goods and allow the port authority to offer a greater number of related logistics operations.
This project adds to the portfolio of infrastructure contracts that COMSA has carried out in Mexico, which include the renovation of Line 12 of the Mexico City metro, the maintenance of Line A in the same city, the expansion of the federal Sonoyta – San Luis Río Colorado motorway in Sonora and the extension of the Libramiento Sur de Guadalajara motorway.
