We promote sustainable mobility in cities
The Purple Line light rail in Maryland (USA), bus rapid transit systems in Peru and Colombia, more than 200 high-speed rail projects in Spain or the Lund Arlöv railway line in Sweden… Our sustainable mobility projects help us reduce our carbon footprint and make life healthier for millions of people. Take a look at a sample of our work.
Purple Line, Maryland
Light rail system with 26.1 km of track and 21 stations. The project will also transform the Washington D.C. region’s transportation network by adding a light rail service to the interconnected transit system. It is estimated that it will prevent the displacement of 17,000 vehicles per day, thus reducing carbon emissions.
South Corridor Bus Rapid Transit, Florida
We are working to convert the South Corridor (South Dade Transitway) to Bus Rapid Transit (BRT). It will improve travel times for users, create a dedicated lane, install a prepaid system to speed up access and improve road safety.
New York City Subway
The company has left its mark on the Big Apple subway and its main lines. It is currently executing, among others, three projects that will improve the accessibility, structural integrity and design of several subway stations in the Bronx, Queens and Brooklyn.
Bus rapid transit systems in Peru and Colombia
OHLA is participating in the northern extension of the Metropolitano in Peru, which will improve the mobility and quality of life of more than 350,000 people. In Colombia, it is carrying out the project to adapt the Troncal Avenida Ciudad de Cali to the Transmilenio system, which will benefit more than 100,000 people.
Railway projects in Mexico
double cantilever viaduct on section 3, both belonging to the Mexico-Toluca intercity train; Line 3 of the Guadalajara Light Railway; and section A of the extension of the Lechería suburban train to the new Felipe Ángeles International Airport in Mexico City. All of them will contribute to improve connectivity and sustainable transportation in Mexico City.
OHLA has undertaken the construction of several sections for the Santiago Metro on Lines 2, 3, 4, 5 and 7, including the Plaza Egaña and Dorsal stations, in addition to the construction of the Valparaíso-Viña del Mar Metro. In total, there are about 21 km of tunnels.
The extension of Metro Line 1 from the capital to Villa Zaita includes the construction of a terminal station with a maximum capacity of 10,000 passengers at peak hour. The project stands out for the implementation of the BIM methodology in all phases of the work.
30 years developing high-speed train projects
The company has 30 years of experience and nearly 200 projects in Spanish High Speed Railway, such as the north-northwest corridor of the Madrid-Galicia High Speed Line (Espiño tunnel section, left track) or the platform of the Vitoria-Bilbao-San Sebastián High Speed Line (Antzuola-Ezquio/Itxaso East section).
EPC Ski, Norway
OHLA has executed this railway project as part of the Follo Line, Norway’s most important transport initiative. Nearly 100,000 passengers benefit from this infrastructure, which includes actions with a high sustainable value and improves connections to Oslo.
Lund-Arlöv railway line, Sweden
The project includes the construction of 8 km of line with four tracks and 5 km of two temporary tracks parallel to the existing route. It is a pioneering example of the use of BIM, geographic information systems (GIS) and drones and will benefit 80,000 passengers per day.
Railway corridors in the Czech Republic
OHLA participates in and has executed such important contracts as the optimization of railway track between the cities of Plzeň and Stříbro, the modernization of the Tábor-Sudoměřice railway line and the reconstruction of the Vsetín railroad station.
