Overview Mass transit systems transform modern cities, provide clean, safe, and cheap mobility to citizens and facilitate commerce and economics. Well designed mass transit systems enliven urban centres. Cities become harder to access when increased car ownership is coupled with population growth, which can stifle commerce and degrade quality of life. On a purely functional level through facilitating mobility, mass transit systems can act as catalysts for economic development and inward investment. At the same time they present the public face of a city to its visitors and prospective businesses. When implemented well, mass transit systems generate a positive image of the cityâ€™s quality of life as well as enormous advantages over road traffic in terms of sustainability and safety. However, delivering mass transit systems is not easy. Many diverse and complex issues need to be addressed in order to arrive at econonomically viable, robust business cases for projects. It is also essential that the delivery team remains open and flexible in order to adapt the solution to local circumstances, reflecting community values and stakeholder preferences gathered over the long-term. Definition of appropriate solutions for mass transit problems needs to be specific for particular circumstances in order to be effective. The WorleyParsons Urban Rail Team achieves this by bringing together specialists in all aspects of mass transit systems and capitalising on our outstanding sector experience. Our specialists are skilled in a wide range of inter-related fields, and have strong leadership which is essential for the necessary understanding and overview of a very complex delivery process. These requirements are well aligned to WorleyParsons core values of multidisciplinary sophistication, transparency and agility. Cutting across the traditional boundaries between disciplines, our team has experience in the core areas of metropolitan and Light Rail Transit (LRT) systems: planning; alignment; systems; vehicles; signalling/train control; operations and maintenance; stations and depots; finance; land use and property; safety and quality; and institutional development. With direct involvement in planning, design, specification, procurement, testing, commissioning and operation of mass transit systems across the continents, WorleyParsons brings unrivalled project experience.

Feasibility Studies Linking communities, economies, workplaces, services and opportunities is something that only transport can do. Defining the right system is the key to growth, re-generation and social connectivity. Understanding which economic, social, environmental and political problems can be solved and how opportunities can be created by an appropriate use of metropolitan rail and light rail transit as part of a transport system requires a special kind of vision. Whether tackling a congested traditional city centre or planning for future developments in urban settings, a broad understanding of the issues and some practical assistance can make the difference between a never-ending struggle and a key to unlock myriad benefits. WorleyParsons understands communities, how and why people travel using rail and how to get them to travel in a more sustainable manner. We recognize that finding synergies between communities and economies can be the key to developing a rail transport system that will further stimulate economic growth while reducing emissions, congestion and nuisances such as noise and visual intrusion. WorleyParsonsâ€™ transport, rail and planning professionals work with the appropriate authorities, operators, consumer groups and other interested parties to assess the particular needs in each situation, gather and analyze data, help define appropriate transport solutions, provide ideas and guidance on funding, project management, operations, revenue streams and partnerships. Every situation is different. Sometimes tried and tested simple solutions are appropriate; in others situations something innovative and eyecatching may be needed to encourage a new way of living. In delivering pre-feasibility and feasibility studies for our customers, we aim to deliver solutions that are technically viable, inherently safe, provide maximum benefit to the community, are able to cope with future demand and are cost effective. We also have the expertise to conduct option identification and demand analysis studies.
