Israel’s new $2bn high-speed rail connecting Jerusalem with Tel Aviv has been completed after 17 years of planning and construction. The project has been designed to reduce the 37-mile cross-country trek to just 28 minutes. Now set to begin running, we find out how high-speed rail is going to change travel in Israel. Also in this sector, we pinpoint the high-speed passenger rail routes winning out over aeroplane travel to determine how and why they’re becoming so popular.
Across the regions, we profile plans for a new Northern Powerhouse Rail connecting Bradford, Leeds, Manchester and Liverpool in the UK, and get Timetric insight into how and why the Asia-Pacific region is the fastest growing in the global rail industry.
In technology, we hear how to create digital models of railway corridors by feeding drone survey data into ERTMS Level 2 equipment, speak to the team planning to 3D print trains, and try a new train ticket app for auctioning off empty first class seats.
