Description

Texas Central is developing a new, investor-owned high-speed rail train that will connect North Texas, the Brazos Valley and Housing, using proven, world-class technology. The 90-minute trip will provide a safe, reliable and productive transportation alternative. The company’s market-led approach is backed by investors, not government grants, a new business model for infrastructure advances. Texas Central and its affiliates will be responsible for the systems, design, finance, construction, operation and maintenance. In this session you will:

  • Learn why design-build was chosen for this innovative project;
  • Understand how the market-led approach differs from other high speed rail projects in the country;
  • Discover how the design-build team has worked together to date to advance the project.
  • Learn the status of the project including major milestones and estimated completion.
