WSP takes part in Texas’ high-speed rail project

Texas Central announced that WSP USA is joining the Bullet Train team to provide engineering support as the project moves ahead in its pre-construction phase.
Texas Central, developers of the high-speed passenger train between North Texas and Houston, cited WSP’s award-winning experience in designing infrastructure projects and said its work will focus on engineering, cost estimating and scheduling.
The announcement reflects the continued progress of the high-speed train, coming just weeks after Texas Central selected Fluor Enterprises and The Lane Construction Corporation to perform pre-construction planning in which WSP will provide engineering services.
The project continues to announce world-class participants as it brings the best talent on board, building toward the expected 10,000 direct jobs each year during construction in Texas.
“We are excited to partner with WSP, a company that has been involved in many iconic transportation projects around the world. This further demonstrates the attention the Texas Bullet Train has received from world-class firms with such scale and experience,” Texas Central CEO Carlos Aguilar said.
The multibillion-dollar project is a 386-km line that will connect North Texas and Houston in 90 minutes, with a midway stop in the Brazos Valley. The investor-owned project, which is not taking federal or state grants for its construction or operations, is bringing in partners familiar with Texas, creating jobs and opportunities.
“WSP’s expertise in major infrastructure projects and our team of seasoned professionals position us well to ramp up quickly in support of the Texas Bullet Train. This is a transformational project and we are proud to be part of the project team,” said Joseph Pulicare, president of transportation & infrastructure for WSP USA.
