The new AirTrain Newark will be a 4km elevated guideway built to replace a system that debuted in 1996 but has become outmoded and unreliable over the years.
The Port Authority of New York & New Jersey in the USA has issued a request for proposals (RFP) to:
- Liberty AirTrain Partners (Skanska USA Civil Northeast, SNC-Lavalin Project Services, Cowi North America and Mitsubishi Heavy Industries America);
- Liberty Integrated Connectors (Dragados USA, Halmar International, Schiavone Construction, HDR Engineering, and BYD Transit Solutions);
- Liberty Mobility Express (Kiewit Infrastructure, Tully Construction, AECOM USA, and Alstom Bombardier Transportation (Holdings) USA);
- Tutor Perini/Parsons JV (Tutor-Perini Corporation, Parsons Construction Group, and DCCCA1 (Doppelmayr)).
Groundbreaking on the project is expected in mid-2022.
