Mexico Metro – Line B
SYSTRA provided technical assistance on the project to build Line B of the Mexico City metro network.
Line B of the Mexico metro network adds the final touch to the existing metro network, linking Buenavista in the centre of Mexico City to Ciudad Azteca in the north-eastern suburbs. The line straddles the Federal District (11.5 km) and Mexico City State (10.2 km), providing good services to the central part of the city, where most people work and where shops, administrative offices and urban facilities are concentrated.
SYSTRA’s technical assistance role mainly involved:
- Core systems engineering (track, power, low voltage currents, tolls, central controls, telecommunications etc.);
- Producing the technical specifications for the supply of equipment;
- Factory inspections of fixed installations;
- Supervising inspection of equipment;
