You are here:

Colas Rail is a major global supplier of tram design and construction. Our range of skills and light rail experience allow us to offer our customers a flexible service, focused to meet specific needs.

Colas Rail has a wealth of experience in delivering light rail schemes throughout the world having been a leading light rail contractor for over 30 years.
We have developed metro and tram schemes in over 50 cities around the world including work encompassing Europe, Asia, Africa and America.
An understanding of the logistics required to build around the demands of a city’s day to day operations, traffic management, environmental concerns and proactive stakeholder engagement are of paramount importance to the success of any project, as is the education of the city’s population to the presence of a new transport system within its environment.
Colas Rail also carries out infrastructure maintenance, repairs, renovation and upgrade to tram and other light rail systems. We have developed our own methods of implementing inspection, carrying out preventative maintenance and the progressive replacement of redundant assets. Colas Rail is one of Europe’s leading maintenance contractors working in both the private and public sectors.

“The demand for Light Rail will only increase over the forthcoming decade and beyond. At Colas Rail we are in an enviable position to meet this challenge. As one of the world’s leading Light Rail contractors we have a track record of over 25 years designing and delivering systems in more than 50 cities around the world.”
