Turner & Townsend has won a key role on the project to build a 52km railway line in Malaysia.
The firm will deliver quantitative cost risk assessment services for the MRT Sungai Buloh-Serdang-Putrajaya Line.
Developed by Mass Rapid Transit Corporation, the line will be the second of three mass rapid transit systems to be constructed in and around the capital of Kuala Lumpur.
The new line will include 37 stations, 26 of which will be elevated and 11 underground.
Construction is expected to start soon and the line is scheduled to be fully operational by 2022.
More than 500,000 people are expected to use the line every day, travelling on trains at speeds up to 100kmph.
Turner & Townsend head of infrastructure in Asia Rodney Moulder said: “We are thrilled to have won this commission for such a vital public transport system that’ll bring Kuala Lumpur a step closer to reaching its aspiration of being one of the most liveable cities in the world.
“The services we are delivering under our commission will reinforce budget confidence throughout the eight-year construction period.”
