Railways are a vital and important mode of transit, connecting communities across the world. Rail transit systems carry people and freight safely, cost effectively, efficiently, and with a reduced carbon footprint.

Railways in India
Before 2000, railways in India were fully owned, controlled and operated by the country's central government. Limited private participation was permitted for improving operational efficiency and introducing new technology. Once private participation in the railway sector was allowed, LEA emerged as one of the first consultants to be awarded projects in the sector.
