COMPARISON BETWEEN FEASIBIITY OF HIGH SPEED RAIL & ELECTROMAGNETIC RAIL IN BANGLADESH(PART-10)

COST COMPARISON BETWEEN ELECTROMAGNETIC & HIGH SPEED RAIL:


PRELIMINARY DECISION

From the table highlighted above, the cost of Electromagnetic rail is so high in both cases that it is not suitable for Bangladesh compared with High speed rail.
In terms of cost Electromagnetic rail may be comparable with Air transportation system, which is not included in our project.
Now we try to check the feasibility of High speed rail compared with Conventional rail (with respect to cost).

Based on the above datas cost of high speed rail is higher than conventional rail but with respect to time it is preferable for passengers than other transports.
