Metronet Morley Ellenbrook line

Commuter and main lines

Across the world, Arup has been at the forefront of rail for more than 40 years, working with clients to unlock the transformative potential railways offer. Our international team brings extensive experience helping clients to take projects from vision to reality – whether a completely new urban rail project or a major extension of an existing network – delivering reliable and high-quality assets and a positive legacy beyond the railway. 

We support governments, asset owners and rail operators across every facet of a scheme’s development. Our approach is to maximise the economic, social and environmental benefits. This begins by defining a sound business case and route alignment with the credibility to gain enduring support. With a scheme design up and running our team helps clients to solve complex design and programme challenges, such as rail systems integration and energy transition. We recognise the need for cost-effective performance too, ensuring optimal service and asset performance once the line is operational. Ultimately we all want to see low emission, high capacity and resilient railways – and we help clients to achieve this at every stage of the journey.
