"We are on the cusp of a revolution in transport, driven by technological change and opportunity, fuelled by socio-economic and personal needs," Giles Perkins, Technical Director in Transport Planning & Intelligent Transport at WSP.
WSP rail planners design to improve the world they travel themselves, taking into account environmental, social, political, and economic contexts. Good planning leads to effective rail transit investments that maximise customer potential while controlling costs. It can also ignite a community’s economic development.
Clients recognise us for our collaborative, comprehensive, environmentally sensitive, and cost-effective approach. Around the world, our rail engineering teams have extensive knowledge of region- and country-specific rail regulation and policies, from European Union directives to the US Federal Transportation Administration’s New Starts guidelines. We also have strong expertise in community, regional, environmental, smart growth, multi-modal, and policy planning.
