High Speed Rail
Several thousand kilometres of HSR built around the world
High speed rail brings people closer, slashing travel time between cities and unlocking a host of economic benefits.
SYSTRA has been a pioneer in high speed rail for more than four decades. We have brought high speed rail to China, France, Malaysia, Singapore, Korea, Morocco, Sweden and the UK. We have worked on every high speed line in France and are involved in more than half the world’s high speed lines in operation.
In 2017 we were awarded major engineering contracts for two new high speed lines: in the UK, we won two contracts on the new high speed railway HS2, Phase One of which will run from London to the West Midlands. We also secured two contracts on the new Kuala Lumpur-Singapore
High Speed Rail link.
In France we delivered three high speed lines in one year – a huge achievement. We also helped Africa achieve its record rail speed for the first time on the Tangier-Casablanca line; a project we have been involved in since 2005.
