In our March edition, we examine how MTR Corporation, the operator of Hong Kong’s mass transit network, has been affected by the recent protests. What has the targeting of stations in Hong Kong shown about the interconnection between politics and transport in the region, and has MTR’s reputation suffered?
Also next time, we analyse whether political tensions risk hampering the construction of the Bi-Oceanic Railway Corridor, a new proposed line set to connect Peru to Brazil, and examine the potential benefits of DHL’s new rail freight service between China and Germany.
We also speak to Bombardier about their brand new propulsion and control system; explore the use of remote sensing technologies for railway infrastructure monitoring; and revisit the gender balance of rail employees after the proposal of an EU-level agreement to promote the employment of women in rail.
Finally, we speak to the UK’s Ascension Trust, which have partnered with Network Rail to create a new scheme of trained ‘rail pastors’ to help vulnerable people on the railways.
