Bucharest Metro Line 4 Feasibility Study
The Metroul SA – Amberg Engineering AG Joint Venture, with Transport Insights as sub-consultants, has been awarded the consultancy services contract by METROREX, Bucharest’s metro authority, for development of a major extension to the City’s metro network.
The 22-month contract shall examine the investment need, identify a preferred alignment and develop preliminary designs for the proposed 11+ kilometre scheme connecting Gara De Nord in the centre of the City to Gara Progresu in its southern suburbs. Transport Insights will provide transport planning and cost-benefit analysis support throughout the lifetime of the project.
Speaking on the contract award, Transport Insights’ Managing Director Ciaran McKeon said “I am very pleased that Transport Insights shall be to supporting METROREX on this exciting commission. Having previously successfully partnered with Metroul on other metro development and renewal projects, including the recently completed Metro Line 4 extension from Parc Bazilescu to Straulesti, I was gratified to visit that scheme during a recent visit in the City (new metro line 4 station at Straulesti pictured). I am confident this current commission will be equally successful for the Client and consultant team.”
