The article cites the move of Brazil's National Land Transport Agency (ANTT) to revise plans for tendering the proposed high speed line between Rio de Janeiro, Sao Paulo and Campinas after the government received no bids for a concession to build and operate the line. It notes the original plan envisaged by ANTT and the postponement of deadline from November 2010 to July 2011. It also indicates that the line is due to be open by the time that Rio hosts the 2016 Olympic Games.
