Politicians meet with engineers to discuss Rio's rail upgrade plans

Rio de Janeiro’s state government has presented plans to modernize rolling stock and infrastructure across the Olympic host city’s rail network.

Officials met with engineering experts to discuss Rio’s transport investment plans for the next 10 years.

Proposals include overhauling the trains and stations which serve the MetrôRio underground network and SuperVia commuter services.

SuperVia’s fleet has grown from just 10 trains in 2007 to 83 in 2013, with plans to double that number by 2016.
