Arcadis wins management role on USA’s first high-speed railway

14 Aug 14 Arcadis is to carry out project and construction management for a segment of the USA’s first high-speed rail system.

It will support the California High-Speed Rail Authority (Authority) with design and construction oversight of a section of the US$68bn system that will connect the mega-regions of the state. The system will connect Los Angeles and San Francisco in about two hours and 40 minutes. It is expected to be completed by 2029.

Arcadis could receive up to US$71.86m over a period of approximately five years. It will provide oversight and management of contractors designing and building portions of the 65-mile segment between Fresno and the Tulare-Kern County line.

"We are honoured to be chosen to support the Authority on this transformative public infrastructure project," said Gary Coates, CEO and COO for Arcadis US. "Increasing mobility that connects people, drives economic development, and enhances environmental conditions in California's fastest growing communities aligns with our mission to improve quality of life for those who work, live and travel in the region."
