Comsa to build branch line to connect Port of Veracruz in Mexico

(30/01/2019)   

The new section, equipped with concrete sleepers, 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. The contract also includes clearing work, ballast supply and additional civil engineering works.

Port of Veracruz has already exceeded its manoeuvring capacity. The new railway connection will provide a way of communication to the north of the country, decongesting the entry and exit of goods and allowing the port authority to offer a greater number of related logistics operations.
