Neasden Depot Upgrade Project
AECOM set a goal of providing London Underground with a means to build
and deliver key new infrastructure for Neasden Depot, London Underground’s
largest rail depot. AECOM also plans to maintain a fully operational facility
throughout the six-stage construction program of demolition, refurbishment,
and new-build elements that represent the largest rail depot upgrade in London
in recent years.
MicroStation, Bentley Rail Track, and Bentley PowerRebar were used for the
depot’s multidisciplinary design and project management. Creating a single
building model with Structural Modeler and incorporating 3D renditions of key
design elements resulted in significant time and cost savings. AECOM deployed

Lucknow Metro—Alignment Design
SREI Infrastructure Finance prepared detailed project reports for two rail
transport metro corridors in Lucknow, India, the capital of Uttar Pradesh. The
tasks encompassed alignment planning and design, geotechnical investigation,
station planning, and environmental and social impact assessment. With
an estimated capital cost of $1.2 billion, the project is needed to meet the
anticipated population growth from 2.3 million to 4 million by 2021.
Bentley Rail Track was deployed to automate design and workflows, which
increased productivity, saved time, and optimized 48 kilometers of track
alignment in less than three months. Shallow station design with stacked
alignments was used to reduce the width of structures and depth of the station.
This approach allowed for tight but safe clearances while minimizing property
acquisition and related disruption in this designated heritage city.
