On February 28, local time in Beijing, Monterrey Light Rail Line 3 opened in Mexico. The high-end train was developed by CRRC Zhuzhou Locomotive Co., Ltd and is Mexico's first China-built light rail car.
Monterrey is the third largest city in Mexico and the capital of the state of Nuevo Leon. The light rail line 3 is 7.5 kilometers long and has 8 stations. It connects the Metropolitan Hospital in San Nicolas de los Garza with the General I. Zaragoza Station in downtown Monterrey. Nuevo Leon Governor Jaime Rodríguez, who attended the opening ceremony to cut the opening ribbon, said that the China-built train can provide a fast and comfortable travel experience for more than 116,000 people. Transportation in Nuevo Leon is smarter and more advanced.
The train rolled off the assembly line on October 29 last year. It is designed to travel at 80 kilometers per hour.
CRRC Zhuzhou has an innovative management approach, a complete vehicle design platform, and a strong supply chain guarantee system. The company completed the design, production and delivery test of the train in just 10 months, despite the COVID-19 epidemic and tight scheduling.
In recent years, CRRC Zhuzhou has responded to the "Belt and Road" initiative and is committed to providing full-life cycle system solutions for global customers. At present, the electric locomotives, subway trains, and EMUs developed by the company serve 22 countries and regions around the world.
