Course Description

Metro railways are becoming an increasingly attractive investment for governments all over the world. Design and construction of these systems is critical to the success of rail infrastructure. This course equip participants with the knowledge they need to design efficient, aesthetic and practical rail solutions for metro, passenger, freight and heavy haul as well as light rail, intermodal and associated facilities including stations.

Course Objectives

  • Presenting an overall summary of the construction methods
  • Understanding metro rail dynamics
  • Learning about soil-structure interaction
  • Discussing railway alignment design and geometry
  • Maintaining safe and efficient signal timing

Who Should Attend?

  • Maintenance and facilities staff
  • Engineers
