The Central Florida fragment would begin at Orlando International Airport and travel for the most part along the Interstate 4 hallway into downtown Tampa. Notwithstanding the rail itself, Brightline delineated plans to construct stations in Tampa, Orlando and Lakeland (the close halfway point), and potentially one close to The Walt Disney World Resort. The organization intends to design 30% of the undertaking structure and after that agreement the rest of a plan manufacture contract.Brightline repeated its arrangement to secretly fund development and activities, and the organization assessed that the rail development alone would have a monetary effect of $2.4 billion in Central Florida, with an anticipated GDP of $1.3 billion and government, state and neighborhood impose income age of $270 million. Tasks would create more than $1 billion in extra financial advantages for the locale.
