Texas Central bullet train named top global infrastructure project


[Editor's note: This story was updated on March 8, 2019.]

Texas Central's proposed bullet-train project to connect North Texas and Houston has been named among the top global infrastructure projects by advocacy group CG/LA.

The project is estimated to create 10,000 direct jobs for each year of construction and support 1,500 full-time jobs when operational, according to a Texas Central press release.

“The Texas [Central] train is a transformational project that is generating attention and excitement among infrastructure experts who recognize it as a catalyst for creating jobs, boosting the economy and providing a much-needed transportation choice,” said Texas Central Chief Executive Officer Carlos Aguilar.

CG/LA also ranked the Houston-to-North Texas line as one of America’s most important projects.
