LONDON, February 21, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- With the latest High Speed Rail (HSR) construction contract of EUR7.2 Billion being awarded in July and the EIB recently investing EUR900million into a new HSR project in Spain, it's clear to see that HSR continues to be investment attractive. As such, construction companies need to be prepared in their approach to ensure maximum success in securing potentially lucrative future contracts.
EIB Vice-President Magdalena Alvarez underlined the "strategic importance of developing the high-speed network that will foster better rail communications between the EU regions and undoubtedly generate safety, efficiency and sustainability gains in the transport of both goods and people."
