French Railways & High Speed Rail

Antoine HENDOUX - 14/12/16





Business France Singapore organized, in collaboration with the Economic Department of the French Embassy and the Land Transport Authority, a French-Singaporean Railways & High Speed Rail seminar on December 7th.


Several French companies had the opportunity to introduce their expertise to decision-maker and technical experts from the LTA. Three workshops enabled to discuss in-depth about: 1. Security and safety; 2. Life Cycle Cost; 3. System Engineering & integration and cost optimization.


This event also enabled to highlight the French know-how in railway systems, as well as our ability to control the value chain, from construction equipment, signaling, safety and security, rolling stock and maintenance, to the system integration.


With 35 years of operation and more than 1.7 billion passengers transported during this period, the French HSR is a popular success. Being continuously modernized and expanded, the network accounts more than 2000 km of high speed rails, and two new HSR exceeding 500 km in length will be opened mid-2017 in the west and south-west of France. The French know-how in cross-border interoperability also represents an asset in the view of the Singapore-Kuala Lumpur High Speed Rail Project.
