Rail Safety Africa 2013 will explore new ideas and progressive ways to meet safety expectations in the fast growing African railway sector.
The Rail Safety Africa Conference event will bring together the key industry decision-makers with the intention of developing new ideas and progressive ways to meet safety expectations in the fast growing African railway sector.
According to the SCI Verkehr African Rail Market Study, the African rail network is set to grow from 82,100 route-km in 2011 to 96,360 route-km in 2017.
