Jacobs has been awarded a contract to provide strategic planning and advisory services to Ireland’s National Transport Authority (NTA) as it develops and implements sustainable and accessible transport infrastructure and services across the nation.

The NTA has re-appointed Jacobs to provide strategic support with the development of transport strategies, urban centre, local transport and other area-based development plans.

Jacobs will also support with policy and guidance, and general town planning matters. 

The appointment builds upon Jacobs’ long-standing relationship with the NTA providing vital strategic transport plans and studies. 

The NTA estimates the new contract duration to be approximately three to four years. 

“We’re harnessing our strategic advisory and digital capabilities to drive innovation and help clients like the NTA create intelligent, responsive and efficient transportation systems tailored to users’ needs,” said Jacobs senior vice president Kate Kenny. 

“Our continued collaboration with the NTA reflects our shared commitment to shaping a future where sustainable, accessible transportation connects people and communities to opportunities."

Jacobs has more than 1,200 employees in Ireland serving clients in sectors including advanced manufacturing, cities and places including transport planning and other infrastructure. 

Projects include the National Transport Authority's BusConnects Dublin and BusConnects Cork programmes, bus service planning across the whole of Ireland, the NTA’s Modelling Support Services and Cork County Council’s M28 Motorway project. 

Jacobs also supports Irish Rail's East Coast Railway Infrastructure Protection Projects programme – the largest coastal protection scheme in North-Western Europe, the WuXi Biologics Drug Substance Manufacturing Facility and Edwards Lifesciences Greenfield Manufacturing Facility.
