The growing need for mobility and the evident limits of growth, with the resulting call for environmental protection and conservation of natural resources, bring railway transport back into focus.

The attractiveness of railway transport can only be increased by implementing a wide range of measures aimed at creating and maintaining a modern rail infrastructure. While the construction of high-speed railway lines is geared towards passenger transport, the upgrade and rehabilitation of existing standard and narrow gauge lines is aimed at both passenger and freight transport.

Being a competent designer, ILF has contributed significantly to the implementation of numerous projects in many different countries. ILF provides engineering services both for civil works and rail systems. This enables ILF to render one stop shop engineering services for all disciplines involved in railway engineering.


Fields of expertise:

  • Conventional railway lines for regional, freight or mixed traffic
  • High-speed/high-capacity railway lines for regional, freight or mixed traffic
  • Standard, narrow and broad gauge
