It’s Infrastructure Week in the US, so we are revisiting a recent video highlighting some of the brilliant engineers already working on the high-speed train — the most massive infrastructure project in the history of the Lone Star State!
Celebrating Infrastructure Week 2019 at High Speeds
Did you know the Texas high-speed train is the largest infrastructure project in Texas’ history?
To build a project of this magnitude, Texas Central has engaged the best companies in the world, including the global construction and engineering firm Salini Impregilo – along with their US-based subsidiary Lane Construction – to lead the civil construction consortium. The company was selected because it is active in more than 50 countries on five continents, with experience building more than 4,000 miles of railway infrastructure around the world – in Australia, Europe, Asia and the Americas.
Texas is a land of big ideas, and this project is the latest example of an innovative, forward-thinking approach that will benefit generations of Americans. This high-speed railroad is planting the seed of a new industry in Texas that will grow technology and jobs in America.
