Atkins is pursuing, and will continue to pursue, contracts connected to Saudi Arabia’s largest metro projects.
The consultancy has bid for work on Mecca Metro, and intends to bid on Jeddah Metro, according to Simon Moon, chief executive officer of the UK-headquartered firm’s Middle East operations.
Moon also revealed that Atkins will continue to explore opportunities related to the extension of the UAE’s Dubai Metro, which the company has supported previously.
In an interview with Construction Week, Moon said: “We have previous experience working on Dubai Metro, and we’re still looking into how we can become more involved [with its extension].” More info
