Streetcars - Challenges of Construction in a City Environment, Costs & Mobility

4

Good overview by Vozzolo. Some information of other presentations is so project specific one wonders if there are lessons learned for other projects. Speakers should always be mindful that the major ideas, lessons need to be highlighted for the audience.
