US-based Jacobs Engineering Group has secured a contract from the Port Authority of Allegheny County in Pennsylvania, US, to offer engineering design services for light rail transit systems.
The financial terms of the four-year indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract remain undisclosed.
The contract covers the provision of professional engineering design services for light rail transit signal systems, in addition to power, field communication, supervisory control and data acquisition systems.
Jacobs will also offer design services for rail and track systems, operating systems, operation control centre communications, light rail vehicles and value engineering.
As a part of Port Authority’s public transportation system, the 26.2-mile long light rail system will serve approximately 215,000 riders a day.
In March, the company secured a contract from the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) to provide intelligent transportation systems (ITS) design and integration support services.
