Taiwan High Speed Rail

We were lead consultant in a joint venture and served as independent checking engineer and site engineer for the Taiwan High Speed Rail project.



Taiwan High Speed Rail runs for about 217 miles (350 kilometers) along the west coast of Taiwan, from the capital Taipei to the city of Kaohsiung. The rail line opened in 2007, and by December 2016 about 400 million passengers had used it.


Mott MacDonald led an international joint venture on a six-year contract as independent checking and site engineer on the Taiwan High Speed Rail project. At the time of development, it was among the world’s largest privately funded transport schemes.

We were also appointed to develop a comprehensive asset management strategy for the rail line's civil infrastructure.


With our help, Taiwan High Speed Rail Corporation has the necessary assurance that its civil infrastructure is being maintained in a safe condition for use by the operator.
