Urban Rail Conference 2024: Delivering the smart and sustainable mobility of the future.

Urban Rail 2024 is set to be held in world class sustainable Brisbane on the 18 and 19th of June at the Sofitel. The event will bring together stakeholders across every level of light rail, suburban rail, metro and high-speed rail passenger rail sector to hear cutting-edge case studies and lessons learned from projects locally and globally.

Urban rail is reshaping the Australasian landscape by reducing traffic congestion and greenhouse emissions and transforming the way we travel by offering smart solutions and multimodal connections.

Becoming the second city in the world to achieve this recognition, Brisbane’s recent gold level achievement under the United Nations’ (UN) Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) Cities Global Initiative was largely due to transport wins such as Brisbane Metro, a fully-electric high-capacity mass transit system saving 50,000 tonnes of emissions over 20 years.

Across Australia, projects such as Sydney Metro, Melbourne Suburban Rail Loop, Light Rail Extensions and Cross River Rail are focussed on meeting the transport needs of the people who live in Australia’s largest cities.

This event promises to be an immersive experience into the latest innovations, challenges, and opportunities shaping the urban rail landscape.
