SNC wins planning deal

SNC-Lavalin has been appointed to develop a corridor planning and development program for Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT).

Under the $20m, five-year agreement, SNC’s Atkins advisory business will support TxDOT to develop solutions for current and future transportation needs for major corridors across the state.

This will include analysis of existing transportation systems, corridor feasibility analyses, relief route studies, multimodal analyses of current and future transportation needs, freight analyses, and various strategy development for state-, region- and district-wide projects.

“We will support TxDOT with critical data and studies for performance-based planning and programming to effectively implement the state’s system-wide improvements,” said George Nash, chief executive of Atkins North America.
