Urban transport systems


Urban transport systems

The quality of public transport significantly influences the attractiveness of large cities in terms of housing, living and working.

In order to meet future needs and to avoid such problems as traffic jams, additional traffic generated by the search for parking spaces, as well as noise and air pollution, many large cities today promote the use of underground and rapid transit systems. On account of the generally limited space available, such systems frequently require sophisticated engineering structures (tunnels, bridges, etc.). Not least due to the complex permit application procedures and the many different disciplines, the demands on interdisciplinary project management are very high.

In order to be able perform the engineering services required for the realisation of such projects in a professional manner, ILF draws upon its pool of qualified employees who have many years of experience in construction projects at home and abroad. Thus ILF is able to provide all engineering services needed for civil works, electromechanical equipment and rail systems.


Fields of expertise:

  • Trams
  • Metro systems
  • Light rail transit
  • Commuter rail
  • Cable cars
  • Various types of guided transport

Metro Line 2 is one of six planned lines of the MRT network to be implemented by the Management Authority for Urban Railways of Ho…

Copenhagen Metro

In the first phase of construction the Copenhagen metro linked the western, southern and eastern parts of the city.

Lagos Cable Car Transit

The first phase of the project presented a special challenge to all engineering departments involved in the preliminary design (2012–2013).
