Under its 2016 capital expenditure programme, BNSF aims to operate a safe and reliable network, as well as support customer demand.
The programme will also bring capital investments more in line with forecasted customer freight service demand.
As part of the plan, BNSF will replace and upgrade rail, rail ties and ballast, which are the main components for the tracks.
According to BNSF, regular maintenance of the railroad allows it to keep network infrastructure in optimal condition and reduce the need for unscheduled service work that can slow down the rail network and decrease capacity.
BNSF south-west division operations general manager Steve Curtright said: “New Mexico plays an important part in the success of our overall network and the broader economy.
“At BNSF, we will always remain focused on operating a safe and reliable network while helping connect products with key consumer markets across our nation and the world.”
