According to the Rail Executive, rail journeys have doubled in the last 20 years or so and continue to rise with over one billion a year. Pressure is mounting on passenger, freight and affordability demands.
This can be solved with fresh thinking, a different vision and a flexible, questioning approach, which you’ll see in our projects and also our expert reports such as On track for value: A white paper on improving the value of our rail network.
Being a leader in the rail sector means providing safe, reliable transport and also shaping an exciting, environmentally sustainable legacy that meets capacity and supports economic prosperity in our communities.
With our combined heritage and transferrable skills, our team of WSP | Parsons Brinckerhoff experts undertake a wide variety of rail projects; from designing, planning and engineering the rail infrastructure, to the design and implementation of stations and freight terminals. And we can call on expertise from around the globe, as you’ll see in our video below.
