You may have heard of the “rail to nowhere” of which the cost has been ballooning, and the construction of it didn’t begin for years.
There is still uncertainty about its future, however:
On Wednesday, the U.S Federal Railroad Association approved the construction of the first 65 mile section of the 800 mile high speed railway system. This is part of the $63 billion USD California High Speed Rail Project.
When completed, the railway is to run from San Francisco to Sacramento, and to Los Angeles.
Construction is slated to begin in 2013.
