SMEC, as part of a joint venture led by Oriental Consultants Global Company Limited, has been appointed as General Consultant to manage and supervise the construction of the North-South Commuter Railway (NSCR) Project in the Philippines.
Funded by the Japan International Cooperation Agency, the NSCR is a 38 km long commuter railway line that connects Malolos in the Province of Bulacan to Tutuban in Manila.
The NSCR is part of an overall initiative by the Philippine government to expand the existing mass transportation in metropolitan Manila and adjacent areas, and alleviate serious traffic congestion in and around the capital city.
Scope of work includes: construction supervision; design review; tender assistance; and facilitation of the Environment Management Plan, Environment Monitoring Plan and Resettlement Action Plan.
SMEC was also part of the joint venture which successfully completed the civil works design last year.
