The Roads and Transport Authority of Dubai has awarded phases 2 and 3 for the extension of their iconic Metro system to SYSTRA, thus renewing their trust in the Group that has already managed the engineering and consultancy projects.

On 1 January 2017, JMP and SIAS became fully integrated with SYSTRA and staff from both companies are now operating under the SYSTRA banner.  This brings the number of SYSTRA’s UK and Ireland-based transport specialists to nearly 500, based in offices in 13 towns and cities.

SYSTRA acquires VETEC, a Brazilian engineering company specialising in the transport sector.

  • This acquisition follows on from, and is complementary to, the acquisition of TECTRAN, a Brazilian consultancy firm, which became part of the Group in mid-2015.
  • With more than 400 employees in Brazil, SYSTRA has all the resources necessary to strengthen its positioning on the Brazilian market and to tackle the public transport challenges in the region.
  • With this new acquisition, SYSTRA is forging ahead with its international expansion strategy focused on strengthening local expertise with a view to supporting the development of transport infrastructure in high growth potential markets.

Following SYSTRA’s successful acquisition of both JMP and SIAS earlier this year, its UK Directors are delighted with the swift progress made on integrating the companies and can announce that everything is on track for a formal start to the new fully integrated SYSTRA business from 1 January 2017.

SYSTRA’s Movement and Place team are developing approaches to better understand how the nature of walking networks influences movement through our towns and cities.  This is a work in progress and whilst the final outcome may differ from that shown, it shows how powerful modelling tools can be to understanding more about how people move and how planners and decision-makers can respond through targeted interventions.
