By Chris Sleight24 August 2010

Fluor has won the contract from the Abu Dhabi, UAE Department of Transport to programme manage construction of the emirate's new Integrated Public Transportation Network.

The mass transit system is being created in response to Abu Dhabi's expected growth over the next two decades, and is part of a wider project called Plan Abu Dhabi 2030. This will see public transport integrated with surrounding residential and commercial developments, in a bid to increase the use of public transport over cars.

Fluor will provide a variety of consulting services to the Department of Transport, including transportation modelling, system integration ,design, procurement, construction, commercial development and funding analysis.

Patrick Flaherty, head of Fluor's Infrastructure business line said, "We are extremely proud to secure this strategic award in competition with such an extensive field of world-class transportation consultants. We commend the Abu Dhabi Department of Transportation on the transparency and quality of its procurement process and we are honoured by the confidence they have shown in Fluor's technical strength and local knowledge to award us this very important programme."
