Strategic planning and development consultancy support will help deliver sustainable, smarter, more accessible public transport solutions.

Jacobs has secured a position on Transport for London’s (TfL) capital programme delivery partner contract working with Gardiner and Theobald. TfL will use the contract to procure all project management, construction management and project management office services and resources.

TfL estimates the contract will operate for a four-year period, with immediate mobilisation. The contract will enable TfL’s capital delivery teams, responsible for the delivery of all major programmes and line upgrades across the TfL network, to access agile consultancy support from Jacobs. Initially, Jacobs will support projects including station improvements, asset maintenance, road improvements, line upgrades, systems, healthy streets, commercial development and major engineering projects.

Commenting on the contract win, Jacobs people and places solutions senior vice president for Europe Kate Kenny said: “Planning and delivery of critical infrastructure across the network is vital to supporting more active, accessible and sustainable public transport options that create greener, healthier places.

“Working collaboratively with TfL, Jacobs brings wide-ranging capability from across the company to benefit the capital programme and will help TfL provide additional staff development opportunities through joint knowledge sharing and mentoring.”

Jacobs has supported TfL continuously since it was established in 2000 across a range of projects and programmes, including supporting delivery of the Elizabeth line, the integrated impact assessment for London’s Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ), the ULEZ extension and changes to road user charges, multidisciplinary design support for TfL’s bus priority programme and a range of other consultancy services.
