Rail clients call on our planning expertise to help reduce costs and improve efficiency, while continuing to optimise performance and accommodate growing demand for both passengers and freight. Our innovative thinking and expert modelling skills ensure that we find strategies to help solve these problems.
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 railway engineering teams have extensive knowledge of region- and country-specific railway regulation and policies, from the US Federal Transportation Administration’s New Starts guidelines to European Union directives. We also have strong expertise in community, regional, environmental, smart growth, multimodal, and policy planning.
