A RAILWAY CORRIDOR ACROSS THE TEHUANTEPEC ISTHMUS, MEXICO

CORREDOR FERROVIARIO EN EL ISTMO DE TEHUANTEPEC, MEXICO

The Tehuantepec Isthmus in the South-East of the Mexican Republic is about 200 km wide in its narrowest part, and offers very favourable prospects for the construction of a railway line to carry freight quickly and easily between the Pacific Coast and the shores of the Gulf of Mexico. This paper explains the advantages of a system known as a "Landlift", which would combine transport by ship with railway transit across the isthmus.
