Amey has won a contract with New York’s Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) that will see it undertake an asset management role for Long Island’s roads and rail.
The company will work on Long Island Rail Road’s (LIRR) asset management programme to help increase cost and performance efficiencies. The contract is part of a framework awarded by the MTA for Amey to provide strategic services on a project-by-project basis.
“Because we already work on some of the world’s most demanding transport systems, we truly understand the challenges asset owners face and we work with our clients to help deliver both efficiency and performance. We’re looking forward to working with MTA and bringing a world-class service to the Big Apple’s residents and visitors,” said Amey managing director for consulting and rail Nicola Hindle.
Amey’s LIRR project manager Suzie Heap added: “I’ll be working alongside LIRR colleagues at project level to support all aspects of the programme and ensure that we’re hitting our objectives at every turn.
“We have a proven track record of delivering this type of project support to our international clients and we’re delighted to be able to bring our experience and skills to this project to help our client make better decisions about their infrastructure.”
