Rail & Metro

At SMEC, we understand that investment in new rail infrastructure is necessary for any rail network, that maintenance of rail infrastructure is critical, and that effective management is essential.

With this in mind, we provide a whole-of-life approach to the design, construction, operation and maintenance of railway infrastructure.

Our technical specialists have provided design of new routes for urban, main line and provincial railway networks, and rehabilitation and maintenance services of existing routes. Specifically, our experience comprises:

  • High capacity suburban railways
  • Heavy haul railways
  • Freight railway systems
  • Low-density provincial railways


We continually explore the practical application of advanced technologies to provide innovative, cost-effective and appropriate project solutions, and have delivered numerous rail infrastructure projects using Design and Construct (D&C), Public Private Partnerships (PPP) and Alliance delivery models.

We ensure that comprehensive planning, design and project management systems are utilised on all rail infrastructure projects. Our service offering across the rail sector includes:


These services cover perway alignments, rail embankments, bridges and tunnels, culverts and trackside drainage, rail stations and supporting infrastructure.
