Urban Rail

One of our strongest areas of expertise and excellence comes from our considerable collective global background in the urban rail sector. This includes experience in Asia, the Middle East, North and South America and of course at home in Europe, which puts us, without question, up amongst the leading consultancies in the world for this sector, encompassing work for Banks and International Financial Institutions, Operators and Maintainers as well as Governments and other promoting agencies, Contractors and Manufacturers.


For example, in Malaysia, we have experience of the design, procurement, construction and operation of the Malaysia Monorail system in KL and the eventual valuation of the system prior to its nationalisation. On the PUTRA  LRT line II (now known as the Kelana Jaya Line) we were the expertise in the form of the project director for the lead designer and design manager. Later we were the principle staff who undertook the studies for the extension of the Kelana Jaya line and also the Ampang Line (formerly called the STAR Line 1 LRT), where we also managed the design and procurement of the 12 Km, 13 station extension, including a major new depot and interchange station with the Kelana Jaya line plus significant upgrading of the existing system including the introduction of CBTC signalling and automated operation.


Our team also have experience of a number of other projects and studies in the Malaysian Urban rail sector including input to the transport master-plan for both KL and Penang, input to the planning of the Iskandar LRT and integration of the Johor transport network with a possible connection to the Singapore MRT, leading a team that undertook the study for the construction of the first heavy metro system in Malaysia for a private client, now under construction and with a further two lines currently under review.
