Since the dawn of the industrial age, railroads have been a vehicle for people, cargo and dreams of a better world. They remain a critical part of the transportation infrastructure of 2011. ENR has identified ten of the world’s most notable new railway construction projects based on geographic variety and cross-border economic impact. The projects include Angola’s Benguela Railway, China’s proposed line in Iran from Tehran west to Khosravi, China’s own Harbin-Dalian High-Speed Rail Line and China’s Lanzhou-Chongqing Rail Line. There are also reports on a new line in Libya, the planned United Arab Emirates Network, the Central Asian Rail Link, Brazil’s rail revitalization project and India’s massive new rail cargo plan. Companies such as Skanska and Parsons Brinckerhoff are involved in these projects, which promise to transform much of the developing world.
