The New York Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) has selected US-based Judlau Contracting for a $193.8m project to renovate the new South Ferry station in Lower Manhattan, New York, US.

The South Ferry station was flooded in 2012 due to Hurricane Sandy and also witnessed damage to its electrical and mechanical systems.

This project will also undertake measures to protect the station from flooding due to similar incidents in the future.

"While the old South Ferry Station has been brought back into operation as a temporary replacement, it is obsolete and is not ADA-compliant."

Under this contract, Judlau will carry out works such as leak mitigation, replacement of track, mechanical, electrical, signal and communications equipment, in addition to ceiling and wall panels and other damaged assets.

It will also deliver architectural finishes such as civil and structural steel works, new ventilation system, pumping equipment, the refurbishment of two elevators and five escalators, fire protection, new traction power system and a range of electrical work at two circuit breaker houses and a ventilation plant.

MTA chairman and CEO Thomas F Prendergast said: "While the old South Ferry Station has been brought back into operation as a temporary replacement, it is obsolete and is not ADA-compliant.

"It will improve access to Lower Manhattan for thousands of customers and is part of our commitment to ‘Build Back Better."

Earlier, MTA New York City Transit (NYCT) awarded a contract to remove all damaged finishes and equipment from the South Ferry station and it also ensured the implementation of interim measures to protect the station from such accidents.
