American Business Research launches U.S. high-speed rail unit
ABR will bring its many years of experience to the U.S. to establish high-speed railroads. This move expands ABR's presence in multiple U.S. states, with high-speed railroads and infrastructure integrity crucial to the U.S. economy.
"High speed rail networks are in active operations in more than 20 countries of the world and have been in development in a handful more countries, but have virtually no presence in the United States," ABR President Eric Goodis said.
"High-speed trains are among the leading achievements of transportation engineering and have proven over many years to be the best form of transportation ever created,” Goodis said. “We have managed to advance the greatness of the speed-rail network in many parts of the world, and America deserves to have the best of the best. We estimate that in the next four to six years, Florida, and possibly some other states, will lead the U.S. in having the fastest, most convenient and ecologically cleanest high-speed railroad transportation network.
"For over 20 years, ABR's unique industry position is the result of its extensive experience with infrastructure construction projects that include construction of high-speed railroads, bridges, tunnels, viaducts, airports and runways, as well as the development of carriageways and motorways on road corridors,” Goodis said.
