Engineering and consulting firm Arcadis will contribute to the construction of a light rail line in Los Angeles, USA. The rail route of more than 10 kilometers should ensure faster commuting with better connections in the region and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
The request comes from the Los Angeles County Transportation Authority (LAC Metro), which is responsible for much of the public transportation in the area where the rail route will be located. Arcadis will work with British consulting firm Mott McDonald. The two parties will be responsible for, among other things, the management and inspection of the project.
The railroad must address one of the busiest bottlenecks in the region. According to Arcadis, the light rail will serve eleven stations. In addition to the railway, work will be carried out, among other things, on the widening of streets and a bicycle path along the first part of the light rail line. In this way, alternative modes of transportation should also be encouraged, according to Arcadis. The amount of money involved in the job was not disclosed.
