Guadalajara metro line construction works.

Guadalajara metro line construction works.

After successfully completing the blueprint for Line 3 of the Guadalajara metro in 2013, SENER is continuing its involvement in this contract by providing specialized technical consultancy for the construction of the suburban line that connects Zapopan, Guadalajara and Tlaquepaque, in the state of Jalisco (Mexico), the delivery of which is scheduled for the middle of 2018.

In 2014, SITEUR (the Mexican Urban Electric Train System) awarded SENER a project to provide services in three separate modules: monitoring and updating of studies; projecting and reserving the right of way; and technical consultancy together with project management and coordination. The contract also includes the work to deliver five sections of the line, each of them with an area manager based in Guadalajara and a centralized technical office for all of them in Mexico City.

Line 3 is 22 km long, with 17 km running over viaducts and five km underground. It is a complex route for which SENER has designed a system that is perfectly integrated into the urban environment. It has a total of 18 stations, 13 of which are raised and five underground. SENER was recently named as runner-up in the 2016 Madrid Region Awards of the College of Road, Canal and Port Engineers, in the “Best Foreign Project” category, for the work carried out on this project since 2013.

As a result of these works, SENER has been able to position itself as a leading company in both urban transport and rail. It offers integrated engineering services (design, construction, commissioning, operation and maintenance) for conventional metro, monorail, BRT (Bus Rapid Transit), People Movers, conventional and high-speed passenger trains, and freight and mixed trains.

In total, SENER has worked on more than 10,000 km of rail projects and studies, making it one of the world’s leading companies in this sector. The group has built up a strong international reputation as a designer and supplier of intelligent transportation systems that incorporate high-tech solutions.
