Texas Central, developer of the high-speed train, announced a design build contract has been signed with the JV of Salini Impregilo, one of the largest civil engineering contractors in the world, and its US subsidiary, Lane Construction Corporation. Salini-Lane is to supply the civil and infrastructure scope for the new high-speed train service between Houston and Dallas. This includes the design and construction of the viaduct and embankment sections along the entire route, the installation of the track system and the alignment and construction of all buildings and services that will house maintenance and other rail system equipment. This design-build agreement authorizes a set of early works for the JV to continue advancing engineering design, detailed planning, interface definition and other key prerequisites necessary to start construction. This agreement is the result of their previous work providing front-end engineering and design for the train's civil infrastructure. Other services included optimizing execution plans, strategies and logistics, as well as performing analysis to develop construction costs and schedule estimates.

Carlos F Aguilar, CEO, Texas Central, said that “This agreement brings us one step closer to beginning construction of the civil infrastructure segments of the project. Salini-Lane’s unmatched track record with rail infrastructure, and very specifically its world class high-speed rail expertise across the globe, will be central to the completion of America’s first end to end high-speed rail system.”
