High-speed Rail

High-speed rail was once a scarce invention of the future. Today it efficiently connects communitities and transports commuters between cities, states and even countries all around the world.

Connecting Communities with HighSpeed Rail (HSR)

Connecting communities and improving transportation between cities, states and countries make high-speed rail a true catalyst for economic growth, providing passengers with a safe, reliable transportation alternative.


For customers to travel in comfort while covering large distances quickly, high-speed rail uses specialised rolling stocks and dedicated tracks, which require heavy investment. However, high-speed rail is becoming the standard for energy-efficient transportation, as it provides a solution to congested roads and airports, linking major cities together.


WSP is a global leader in the creation of high-speed rail networks with services ranging from planning to engineering and environmental review to construction management.


In Asia, we are involved in the design and implementation of high-speed lines in China, Korea and Taiwan. In the UK, we are part of the project team for High-Speed 2. In the US, we are involved in all HSR projects linked to the proposed development of a network of over 27,000 km (17,000 miles) by 2030.
