Texas Central, the developers of the high-speed train between North Texas and Houston, announced today an agreement with Bechtel to work together on the project management services. 

Bechtel will support Texas Central in managing the Texas Bullet Train project as it moves from development to implementation.

The 200 mph train will connect the state's largest cities in 90 minutes, with a midway stop in the Brazos Valley. 

“We’re putting all of the elements together, building toward the expected 10,000 direct jobs each year during construction in Texas. The addition of Bechtel, with its experience in train and mega-infrastructure project experience, is another sign of the expertise this project is attracting and leveraging,” Texas Central CEO Carlos Aguilar said.

Bechtel has completed more than 300 major train and subway projects, including the Channel Tunnel High Speed 1, Crossrail in London, Riyadh Metro and Dulles Corridor Metrorail in the Washington, D.C., area.
