Las Vegas: authorities propose a light rail system

Las_Vegas_StripA light rail underground system in Las Vegas is one of the most ambitios projects included in the  Transportation Investment Business Plan released by Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada.
According to the strategy, the light rail system below or above ground could connect hotels on the Strip to McCarran International Airport in 10 to 20 years.
“Without new investments, the roadways, pedestrian facilities and transit system will be overwhelmed, the quality of the visitor experience degraded and the core area’s economic growth impeded,” the draft report says.
The plan does not include the cost of the project, but according to Tina Quigley, general manager of the Regional Transportation Commission, ”the Strip light-rail project alone would cost billions of dollars”.
