The rise of urban populations has put increasing pressure on transit systems all around the world. In this context, intermodal terminals have become vital because they serve as interconnecting hubs and allow passengers to change transportation modes in their transit. Integrating information technology improves station communication capabilities, ticketing and wayfinding. Furthermore, station operators can manage passenger flows and safety by taking preventive crowd control measures.
WSP has planned and developed world-class above-ground and underground rail stations, freight terminals and depots for both government and private sectors.
Bringing Value to Your Intermodal Terminals
Stations and intermodal terminals are more than just interconnections; they are meeting places that provide retail and catering experiences, playing an increasing role in sector development.
One of our latest contributions is London Bridge Station, where we aligned the station with the urban fabric, creating a destination of its own. At City Station, in Stockholm, our engineers combined their experience with the latest building information modeling (BIM) tools in order to create value throughout the life of the facility.
