Denver-based Qwest Communications has filed an application to build a fiber-optic infrastructure along a 8000-kilometer right-of-way of the Ferrocarriles Nacionales de Mexico (Mexican National Railway). This US $250,000 million project is expected to commence this month, with completion slated for 1997. The system will pass through several cities, including Mexico City, Monterrey and Guadalajara and can connect with U.S. long-distance companies at Ciudad Juare¥and Nuevo Laredo. In another construction move, Qwest has added Austin, TX, to its construction route for a major fiber-optic communications system between Dallas and Los Angeles (see Lightwave, September 1995, page 6).
