AECOM Joint Venture Awarded US$43.3-million Contract For The Extension Of Boston’s Green Line Light Rail Service

AECOM Technology Corporation (NYSE: ACM), a leading provider of professional technical and management support services for public and private clients in more than 130 countries around the world, announced today that a joint venture it leads was awarded a US$43.3-million contract by the Massachusetts Department of Transportation to proceed with advanced preliminary design services, the first phase of the joint venture’s overall contract for the extension of the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority’s (MBTA) Green Line light rail service in Boston.

In addition to advanced preliminary design services, the joint venture will provide final design services and services during construction in future phases of the contract for a number of elements, including seven new stations and 4.5 miles of light rail tracks; the relocation of Lechmere station; the reconstruction of bridges along the corridor; and the development of a new maintenance and transportation facility.

“We are proud to partner with the MBTA on its first expansion project in 25 years, which also is currently the largest infrastructure project in Massachusetts,” said AECOM Chairman and Chief Executive Officer John M. Dionisio. “Our local light rail expertise, as well as our direct experience with the entire MBTA system, position AECOM well to help improve Green Line service for Boston’s residents and visitors.”

The extension project is expected to improve air quality and travel times within the corridor, as well as reduce automobile congestion.
