Transport Watch UK Focusing on UK's Traffic & Traffic Systems

Topic 16 Railway conversions, costs and illustations


Costs of actual conversions are here along with those from the Hall Smith Better Use of Railways, Comments and Rejoinders.  Those are all in costs.  They suggest a target price of circa £100 per sq metre all-in.  Applying that the the network's length of circa 16,000 km and assuming a genrouse width of 10 metres paved provdes an all-in cost of £16bn - at 2011 prices.
