BWB were appointed by Shapir Civil & Marine Engineering Ltd to undertake the track for the J-NET Jerusalem Light Rail Project. A Joint Venture consortium of CAF and Shapir won the $2billion contract to Design, Build, Maintain and Operate the new Green Line and an extension of the existing Red Line.
BWB's track design work commenced in January 2020 and was delivered entirely via our UK based track design team, with initial co-ordination and interface provided to the Client by a locally based design manager. Travel restrictions due to Covid-19 had little impact on BWB's delivery and the experienced team met each of the ambitious design delivery milestones.
BWB's scope is to deliver the track design for the entire project, which includes:
- 7km twin track extension to existing Red Line
- 20km twin track new green line
- Circa 250 units of Switches and Crossings (S&C)
- Design of two new depots and the extension one existing depot.
