High speed rail - Fast track to sustainable mobility
High speed rail encompasses a complex reality involving many technical aspects such as infrastructure, rolling stock and operations, as well as strategic and cross-sector issues including human factors and financial, commercial, and managerial aspects.
In addition, the high speed rail system combines all these various elements by using the highest level of technology and the most advanced conception for each of them.
High speed is a rapidly expanding new transport mode and is often described as the "transport mode of the future". This is due to the three main and very important characteristics offered to customers and society: safety, capacity ("within velocity"), and sustainability (in particular respect to the environment).
