Expertise of Durman team adds value to Guadalajara aerial light rail system in Mexico

Case -

With the growing population and an increased need for public transport, the Mexican city of Guadalajara decided to build a third aerial light rail line. The initial plan was designed with 8” galvanized steel conduits for electrical cables. But these conduits had to be imported to Mexico and are very heavy, making them very hard to install on a bridge of 15 metres in height.

Capitalising on their technical expertise, a long experience in the region and the quality of their products, the Durman team managed to convince the project consortium OHL that they could provide a better solution. Using lightweight thermoplastic ducts made the installation much easier, allowing to install 1.8 km of pipes per week. This Durman solution has an immediate impact on costs: it saves time in project planning, and makes significant savings on the product itself.
