Globally new metro rail projects are changing the face of our cities and bringing more commuters to the core of the bustling urban environments and city centre business districts, as well as interconnecting regional cities and associated key nodes. The need for improved public transport and railway stations is a result of a current unprecedented growth in urbanisation, where it is estimated that more than 66% of the world’s population will live in cities by 2050. Cities and their governance entities invest in more sustainable public transport systems to aid the reduction in greenhouse gas emissions, aid economic efficiencies in goods and people movements in and out and across and within the cities, provide better forms of transport, as well as in assisting in creating better sustainable and healthy urban environments aligned to policy and Earth Summit international agreement obligations.
