Global Light Rail Awards

London, 4th - 5th October 2017

Event has taken place


This year marks the 12th running of the Global Light Rail Awards – the industry’s celebration of innovation and excellence in our vibrant and fast-moving sector.

Entries launch in February for what promises to be the biggest and best Global Light Rail Awards yet, building on the success of the 2016 ceremony that welcomed 250 guests from 10 countries to London’s Honourable Artillery Company.

An expert panel of judges evaluated almost 100 entries last year, deliberating over a range of projects that covered customer experience, safety and technical initiatives, engineering and operational excellence, and system design. Honours were also given to the industry’s key innovators in the Supplier and Manufacturer of the Year categories.
