Jacobs wins role on $7.6bn rail scheme

Jacobs has won the track design contract for a US$7.6bn (£5.8bn) rail line in Malaysia.

It has been picked as lead trackwork design consultant for the Sungai Buloh-Serdang-Putrajaya (SSP) Line as part of the three-line Klang Valley Mass Rapid Transit (KVMRT) network.

Jacobs will work with the China Communications Construction Company (CCCC) and George Kent (GK) Joint Venture. The JV was awarded the approximately US$234m contract for the engineering, procurement, construction, testing and commissioning of track work, maintenance vehicles and work trains on the MRT SSP Line by MRT Corporation.

The MRT SSP Line will be approximately 32.4 miles in length, with 8.4 miles of rail in tunnels and the remainder on elevated structures. It will include 26 elevated stations, 11 underground stations and a maintenance depot. The line will serve a corridor with a population of nearly two million people.

Jacobs’ services include the design of trackwork, emergency walkways, cable containment systems and stray current control systems.

It is Jacobs’ first major rail project win in Malaysia. “This follows our deliberate investment in the transportation sector in South East Asia, mobilizing capabilities from the UK and Australia to support our clients in projects with an increasing level of scale and complexity,” said Jacobs buildings and infrastructure senior vice president Patrick Hill.
