The entourage of the Chinese state-owned infrastructure company, CRRC Corporation Limited, was received on the 24th of August, by the governor of Rio de Janeiro, Cláudio Castro, and signed a letter of intent for Line 3 of the Metro with the government. The work will be carried out according to the DLS model, which covers everything from construction design to intelligence-supported operations.
