The US Department of Transportation has given a grant of nearly $202m to California’s ongoing solar-powered high-speed rail project.
The money will fund the construction of six grade separations in the city of Shafter, Kern County. They will vertically separate roads from current freight railways and future high-speed railways where the roads and railways intersect to avoid accidents and smooth the flow of road and rail traffic.
The grant was made through the federal 2022 Consolidated Rail Infrastructure and Safety Improvements programme.
The California High-Speed Rail Authority, the state-mandated body delivering the scheme, said it was the largest award it has received since the passage of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act in November 2021.
