Arup to undertake geotechnical work for Bristol’s Metro West project

Network Rail has appointed Arup to undertake outline design for phase 1 of the Metro West project to reopen a rail link between Portishead and Bristol city centre.

Under the contract, Arup will undertake the geotechnical work for the design, as well as other mulit-disciplinary railway design services such as track, drainage, civils, structures, telecoms and signalling power.

Overseen by the West of England Joint Transport Board, the aim of Phase 1 of the MetroWest project is to reopen the Portishead line to passenger train services, deliver half hour services on the Severn Beach Line and improve services to local stations to Bath Spa by May 2019.
