Expansion part of multi-billion-dollar investment to transform and modernize busiest commuter railroad
Project delivered on schedule and below budget
Governor Kathy Hochul of New York and officials from the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) today opened the Long Island Rail Road (LIRR) Expansion Project to the public. Extending from Floral Park to Hicksville, New York, the 9.8-mile third track expansion to the LIRR Main Line was built by Joint Venture partners Arup and Jacobs. It increases railroad capacity by 50%, alleviates congestion during peak hours, improves overall rail services and enhances rider safety.
Arup Jacobs JV served as the project management consultant for Metropolitan Transportation Authority Construction and Development (MTA C&D) on this $2.6b project. The JV team provided comprehensive project management oversight that includes commercial, risk, public outreach, rail operations and digital information management. The team also provided compliance oversight of design, construction, quality, safety and security.
