At Aurecon, when we look at rail and mass transit infrastructure, we see much more than its component parts. We see its potential to connect people and goods by providing an efficient transport backbone across our landscape and within our urban areas. We see opportunities to build industries and strengthen economies by ensuring the efficient and cost effective transportation of goods. And we see the importance of involving communities in shaping rail and transport networks in ways that will maximise their connectivity and ease of use.
Our transport experts have shown this passion on countless rail and mass transit projects in many parts of the world, across heavy haul, freight, passenger and metro networks. We have developed an in-depth, global knowledge of the rail sector, as well industry standards, systems and practices. This allows us to provide comprehensive advice and solutions across the lifecycle of a project, from inception through to feasibility studies, stakeholder engagement, design and construction, final testing, commissioning and ongoing asset management.
Aurecon has a strong understanding of the business and economic fundamentals of successful rail and mass transit projects. We ensure we always understand the specific business operations requirements and success factors, as well as the wide range of industries that rely on the broader transport chain. In designing, planning and delivering rail and mass transit projects, context is everything.

We combine our technical engineering offering with our advisory expertise, so we can help clients best align their assets to their strategy. Our differentiator is our blend of technical expertise to shape infrastructure with targeted advisory depth providing alignment with business strategy. Our offering delivers more value now and in the future.
We do not consider rail as ‘just rail’. We partner with our clients to consider the economic and societal needs behind infrastructure; and we can design the best solution, regardless of mode. Importantly, we believe in the power of stakeholder engagement and how involving the community across the lifecycle of a project is an important consideration as part of the technical, engineering and advisory expertise we bring to a project.
We are also embracing the future of rail and mass transit as being increasingly digital. New technologies impact how and where people live and work, and directly affect rail and transit needs. For Aurecon, the key to success in this new environment is to harness imagination, link this to evolving digital tools and empower our teams to ensure rail and mass transit infrastructure is future ready.
We have a strong track record providing market-leading expertise across the full range of specialist engineering and design disciplines. This includes strong understanding of whole of project lifecycle considerations such as Systems Engineering and Assurance. We offer our clients services ranging from initial project development and planning phases, through to full engineering design and documentation, construction phase services (including project verification to a level required by regulators), as well as specialist advice in operations, maintenance and management of rail and mass transit assets.
Aurecon’s network modelling expertise allows us to assess operational impacts, efficiency and capacity of new or existing transit projects. This is a valuable capability to plan and validate rail and mass transit concepts and designs. It also provides operating expenditure (OPEX) insights for elements including fuel burn, train crewing expenditure and fleet utilisation.
We offer an integrated approach where we combine our traditional engineering and technical services with the following considerations in order to assure our priority is the delivery of customer-centric project and high value asset outcomes:
