Projects E-rail has worked on, and is working on, in the UK and internationally. Details of these projects can be obtained from E-rail subject to confidentiality issues:
Aberdeen Crossrail - A suburban railway service from Inverurie to Stonehaven
Cardiff - A proposed new rail/tram/busway service to the north and west
Edinburgh South Suburban Railway - Re-opening of the route where the rails and stations still intact
Edinburgh Tram to the Airport – Initial study of the land uplift potential of the tram route
Edinburgh North Suburban - Re-opening of the rail service to Leith and Granton connecting to the city centre.
East Sussex – Potential funds available to finance the re-opening of the Wealden line.
Fife (3 projects) - Two lines not practical but continuing discussions on the Levenmouth line.
Kent - Feasibility report on a link to the East Kent airport
Liverpool - BRT link to John Lennon airport and the main railway line.
Newcastle (2 Projects) - Extension of the metro service on the north side of the river.
Nottingham - Southern extension of the Robin Hood line
Reading - A rail link and station on the business park site.
Southampton - Eastleigh airport rail link to Southern rail services.
Teesside - Reopening of the Darlington to Stockton line.
E-rail is in active discussions with government agencies in Queensland regarding potential projects.
Our Canadian partner is Ken Gosselin P. Eng. FITE. He has more than 40 years of experience in the transportation field including more than 30 years in the planning design and operation of Bus Rapid Transit systems. He has carried out a number of Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) studies in the USA, UK, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. He spent four years in Brisbane, Australia (1995 to 1999) during the implementation of the South East Busway acting as a senior advisor to the Board of Direction. Since his return to Canada he has managed a number of Light Rail Transit studies in Ottawa, Canada and been involved in Bus Rapid Transit Studies in Jacksonville Florida and Nashville Tennessee.
Some of the ERC fund raising Projects in Canada;
Two Light Rail corridors have been planned for the City of Ottawa and ERC were commissioned on both. Both studies produced a positive result however neither progressed using the methodology as government agencies announced public funding for both projects.
An existing major roadway with a north-south orientation is currently discontinuous because of railway tracks. If completed, this roadway would provide a capacity relief for adjacent north-south roadways and open up much greater opportunities for the development or redevelopment of adjacent major industrial/commercial properties. At present this project remains under political consideration.
ERC was engaged by the City to undertake a land value uplift study based on the introduction of a 110 km Bus Rapid Transit system in the Highway 407 corridor from Oakville to Pickering. This rapid transit project currently awaits a proponent.
ERC has just completed a study to look at the potential land value uplift associated with the northerly extension of the Toronto subway system where the cost of implementation is over $3 billion.
