The Taiwan High Speed Rail project, running from one end of Taiwan to the other comprises 345 km of high-speed rail with a design speed of 350 kilometres per hour.

Tony Gee provided a key part to the project as one third of the organisation led by Lloyds Register and including AEA Technology Rail in the combined role of the Independent Verification and Validation project team.

Tony Gee brought experience in the areas of viaduct and station design and construction to the group.

The majority of the railway is either on elevated viaduct or through tunnels, which when added to the special environmental conditions in Taiwan, including earthquakes and typhoons, makes for some challenging engineering.
