Railways provide convenient, fast and reliable low-carbon transport. We partner around the world to create sustainable  and iconic transport projects that help transform societies, including the first and largest nationwide ERTMS system

Enabling high volume, low carbon transport

Rail is one of the most energy-efficient modes of transport. We must expand and upgrade our existing rail infrastructure if we are to shift passenger and goods activity away from cars and trucks and decarbonise our transport system.
With Ramboll’s extensive expertise in railway and urban transport services, we offer planning, design, approval, operational, and commissioning services spanning the whole project cycle, from inception to evaluation upon completion.
