North American freight railroads have long been recognized as worldwide leaders in cost-effective transportation of goods over long distances.
Whether you are constructing infrastructure to accommodate larger, heavier freight cars or expanding terminals to handle ever-increasing traffic demands for intermodal, automotive or bulk commodities, Mott MacDonald can help.
We understand that the narrow bands of property along our rail corridors must work together to provide a stable, reliable, and safe route. Our designs maximize the efficiency and dependability of these corridors.
Our multidisciplinary staff has experience working with Class 1 railroads as well as regional and shortline railroads on projects ranging from utility crossings and grade separations to signaling entire subdivisions. With the broad range of skills available, large and complex projects can be carried out by Mott MacDonald in-house, freeing up the railroad’s staff to perform its day-to-day work.
Our service areas include the following:
- Assistance with the servicing railroad
- Operation and concept feasibility
- Site and track layout
- Project delivery
- Material handling
- Asset evaluation and compliance
As transportation logistics impact companies’ bottom line, integration of road and railroad infrastructure with industrial park design assumes even greater importance. Efficient and effective multimodal access increases the value of the park and results in a successful project. Mott MacDonald provides services for all aspects of Industrial park development: site planning, environmental, roadway layout, utility services, railroad sidings and access, and intermodal interface.
