Our Expertise

SYSTRA has played an integral part in the development of Metro & LRT projects throughout the world for over 60 years.

We work on the early stages of Metro, LRT, Tramways and Tram-train schemes, developing the business case from expert analysis of demand, design and cost. Our engineering team then provides preliminary design, tender preparation, detailed design, construction supervision, testing and commissioning for both infrastructure and railway systems.

Our infrastructure capabilities include street level, elevated, cut & cover and tunnelling structures, while our systems capabilities include signalling, rolling stock, power supply, telecoms, monitoring systems, ticketing, MEPs, permanent way and platform screen doors.

We understand and regularly manage the complex interface between civil engineering and railway systems.  Project promoters appoint us to design and supervise construction programmes. Contractors integrate us in their team to reduce risk and increase efficiency in design.

Operation and maintenance are part of SYSTRA’s DNA and form an integral part of our technical approach to delivering modern transport systems.
