High speed and intercity rail really do link cities to the world. Connecting communities and improving transportation between cities, states, and countries make high-speed and intercity passenger rail a true catalyst for economic growth, while providing passengers with a reliable and safe transportation alternative.
High-speed rail (HSR) uses specialized rolling stocks and dedicated tracks, meaning big investments. However, over the years, HSR has become the global standard for energy-efficient transportation linking cities together.
A Leader in HSR Networks
WSP is a leader in the creation of HSR networks worldwide. In Asia, we were involved in the design and implementation of high-speed lines in China, Korea, and Taiwan. In the UK, we were 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.
