Parson’s UAE Railway Project Receives Infrastructure Project of the Year Award; Gary Adams Comments

Parsons2Construction Week magazine has picked Parsons‘ railway network project in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, as the recipient of the Infrastructure Project of the Year award.

The Etihad Rail Stage 1 project is a 1,200-kilometer passenger and freight railway system that will work to serve as a link between the UAE and other Gulf Cooperation Council member countries, Parsons said Tuesday.

“[The] timing almost coincides with the project being granted the official license to commence commercial operations,” noted Gary Adams, president for the Middle East and African region at Parsons.

A joint venture of Parsons and AECOM oversees the railway project, which also received the Engineering News-Record magazine’s Global Best Project Award of Merit in August.
