Insights into our holistic cost model for high-speed rail at InnoTrans

Railway managers worldwide are committed to the expansion of high-speed rail to improve mobility and to fight climate change. On Wednesday the 21st of September 2022, Friedemann Brockmeyer (Managing Partner) will give insights into our holistic cost model for high-speed rail at InnoTrans.

Particularly in times of a pandemic and geopolitical crisis, increasing demands on rail transport achieving financial better cost effectiveness for new build high speed lines is increasingly put to the test. The question is raised as to whether the type of designing, planning, and executing high-speed rail projects is really the appropriate means to meet the challenges of the present. Based on many years of consultancy experience, civity has developed a holistic cost model for high-speed rail. At the core of this model are costs and cost breakdowns from real investment projects of the past. The presentation will provide an overview of the most important cost drivers. It will help to identify best practices in cost effectiveness – the primary objective being the extraction of transferable good practices for railway infrastructure managers and railway organisations.
