Jacobs and IDOM win Dublin Metro project

Jacobs and IDOM have been awarded a €14m (£12.4M) contract for Dublin’s Metro North project, The Sunday Times has reported. 

The National Transport Authority and Transport Infrastructure Ireland has confirmed that a Jacobs and IDOM JV would develop the engineering design of the project, obtain planning approval and bring the project to construction, the paper reported.

The planned 17km fully segregated light rail system will run from the city to Dublin airport and Swords with both surface running sections and underground sections constructed in cut and cover and bored tunnels.

There will be 17 new stops and two sections of tunnel, approximately 5.5km in the city centre and 2.4km at the airport, and the six city centre stops will be construced in deep underground structures with a new deep stop at the airport.

Jacob’s chief executive Steve Demetriou has told investors the contract was a “significant win”.
