Urban Transport Systems


Urban Transport Systems

The quality of public transport affects the attractiveness of living and working in large cities. In order to meet future needs and avoid problems like traffic jams, lack of parking space, and noise and air pollution, many large cities today promote the use of underground and rapid transit systems. Because of space limitations, such systems frequently require sophisticated engineering structures such as tunnels and bridges. Urban transport systems are demanding projects that entail complex permit applications and interdisciplinary cooperation.

ILF draws on its pool of experienced engineers to provide all of the engineering services needed for civil works, electromechanical equipment, and rail systems.
