The project will involve the construction of the infrastructure, including seven stations and 484.66 miles of tracks, electrification, signaling (ERTMS level 2), the supply of rolling stock and maintenance. Alstom, the consortium leader, will undertake the overall management and engineering of the project, the supply of rolling stock, signaling communication systems, electrification and maintenance.
