Transportation & Infrastructure
Move. Build. Connect. Transportation and infrastructure projects are essential to moving people, strengthening economies and meeting the demands of an ever-growing, truly global world. Trillions of dollars will be spent in the next few decades to improve existing infrastructure or to build new projects, including high-speed passenger rail, freight rail, airports, bridges and ports. The reason for this massive investment is simple - a strong infrastructure is essential to support thriving, growing global economies.
Despite their importance, transportation projects and megaprojects can face many challenges, including community opposition, construction delays, financing issues, environmental concerns, political opposition and unforeseen crises. Clear communication with stakeholders at all stages of project development is critical to ensuring the success of any transportation and infrastructure project.
