Adif, Puertos del Estado, Renfe and Ineco presented their proposals for more sustainable, inclusive, safe and resilient cities at the United Nations World Urban Forum. The event, which attracted 18,000 delegates from close to 170 countries, was held in Abu Dhabi from 8 to 13 February.
Ineco, through its subsidiary Inecomex, in consortium with Cal y Mayor y Asociados, is managing a project to extend Line 12 of the Mexico City Metro, also known as the Golden Line, the newest line in the Mexican capital’s extensive metro network. The new section, with three new stations and 4.6 kilometres of tunnel, will improve connections between the east and west of one of the largest cities in the world.
Tomás Elejalde has been with Metro de Medellín for more than 20 years and has held different positions of responsibility before his appointment as general manager in 2016.
Ineco participated in Habitat III, the largest global event dedicated to urban development, which took place in Quito from 17–20 October. The company gave presentations on its experience in transport planning, sustainable mobility and services to the city. It was the third global conference –the first was held in 1976– which this time focused on the challenges faced by an increasingly urban planet threatened by climate change.
