Engineering services company Jacobs has secured a new contract from Ireland’s National Transport Authority to guide its development of accessible and sustainable transportation infrastructure across the country.
Under the contract, Jacobs will advise the NTA and support local transport, urban centers and other area-based projects. It will also be involved in policy creation and other general town planning activities.
“We’re harnessing our strategic advisory and digital capabilities to drive innovation and help clients like the NTA create intelligent, responsive and efficient transportation systems tailored to users’ needs,” said Kate Kenny, senior vice president at Jacobs.
The deal is a follow-up to a previous partnership between the two sides.
In 2017, Jacobs secured several contracts to share its transport modeling expertise with the NTA to support the development of an integrated transportation system.
The Dallas, Texas-headquartered company also has an existing deal with Ireland’s Cork County Council to advise on the design, construction and closeout phases of M28, a new 12-kilometer superhighway linking the N40 South Ring Road to the Port of Cork in Ringaskiddy.
The M28 expressway is part of the European Union’s Core Trans-European Transport Network.
