8628Cost per mile of Road, vs Rail
- Jun 9, 2005Can someone help me with these figures? Someone (the
San Diego County Regional Airport authority) is giving
o Freeways: $8 million per lane/per mile
o Separate bus lanes: $8.2 million per mile
o Trolley/light rail: $30 million per mile
o High-speed transportation systems: $110
million per mile
Can the light rail figure really be correct?
If so, why should it cost so much more to put down
some steel rails instead of asphalt?
please CC me in any replies! Thanks.
