Parsons is set to support the expansion and rehabilitation of Metrolink, a commuter rail system in the US state of California.

The Southern California Regional Rail Authority (SCRRA) selected the company for a three-year $50m task order, along with four other engineering firms.

The work programme, which also includes other repair projects, seeks to improve safety and services on the Metrolink System.

The project will include project management, construction management and staff assistant services to support improvement works across the commuter rail system.

Parsons connected communities market executive vice-president Tom Topolski said: “The Metrolink System is continually optimising its network, which connects six Southern California counties to provide safe, seamless and reliable transportation.

“With deep roots in California, Parsons will utilise our extensive expertise in railroad project management, design, and construction management to support SCRRA as they expand and improve their system to better connect riders to the community.”
