This report in July 2020, which tracks 339 projects. 

Some of the key highlights of the report are:

  • These projects require an estimated investment of over USD800 billion.
  • Nearly 14,300 km of rail length is planned to be built as part of these projects.
  • More than 3,800 stations/stops will be built.
  • The projects include new lines, new systems, extensions and modernisation projects.

The report comprises a PDF document and a Microsoft Excel database. 

The PDF report provides an introduction to the database and an analysis of the projects included in the database, in terms of development stage (planned, in procurement, or under construction), mode (light rail, tram, monorail, automated people mover [APM], Metrorail, subway, rapid transit, airport rail link, commuter rail, passenger rail), and type of project (new line of an existing system, extension of existing line, or new system). The projects have been classified as either in planning/proposed, under procurement or under construction.

The Excel database provides detailed and up-to-date information on each project, including developer/operator, expected opening, capital cost, sources of funds, key contractors, line length, route, stations, connections with other public transport modes, expected ridership and service frequency, fare system, rolling stock, track, power, signaling technology, and contact person/organisation for the project.

The report will be useful to organisations interested in the railway sector-government agencies, transport authorities, operators, service and technology providers, equipment manufacturers and suppliers, EPC contractors, investors/lenders, research organisations, industry consultants, regulatory agencies, development institutions, etc.
