Expertise / Rail

Rail

Successful rail infrastructure supports efficient and effective movement of people, contributes positively to the public realm and supports economic uplift.

We've planned and designed more than 50 major rail, light rail and underground rail projects. We know that successful infrastructure is about more than good engineering.

We design infrastructure for the people who will benefit from using it, whether that’s from a city-wide perspective, understanding how rail infrastructure releases the potential of a place, or from the direct experience of people arriving at a station, buying their tickets and standing on the platform, waiting for their train.

We bring significant expertise in all facets of rail architecture. From early feasibility studies, master planning, route alignment and rail capacity studies, through to the design of major stations and transport interchanges. 

Delivering large scale metropolitan rail projects on restricted sites and within tight time and budget constraints requires an exceptional level of collaboration. We have found, when the consulting team works together with all stakeholders, the results are win-win. You get a well-engineered piece of infrastructure that’s within budget and operationally efficient, while also delivering a great outcome for the community and a positive passenger experience.
