Have you seen a copy of the tender specification?
You’r correct, 24km/h is not fast for LRT; who are the other bidders? OHL unsightliness can be avoided using APS track inductance.

No, we do not have the tender specification. An operator would have access to the data room, as this bid is operator led. It is a bid for an operator franchise and a tram system provider must be part of such arrangement/consortium.

There is no indication as to whether or not an effort was made to use APS tack inductance to overcome overhead the wiring sore. Possibly overhead wiring generates more local construction jobs and is cheaper than buying an overseas technology out of the box?

I believe this is yet another spam post by the promoter of WaveRail which has nothing crediable to support there clams of the WaveRail technology. Until there is don’t believe a single word that is said.

exerpt only:

This is an interesting concept but …

I do believe your concept would have much more value on an urban passenger transport network though such as Sydney, Melbourne or Brisbane.
