Jacobs was awarded a contract to provide strategic planning and advisory services to Ireland’s National Transport Authority (NTA) as it develops and implements high quality, sustainable, accessible transport infrastructure and services across the nation.

The NTA has re-appointed Jacobs to provide strategic support with the development of transport strategies, urban center, local transport and other area-based development plans. We will also support with policy and guidance, and general town planning matters. The appointment builds upon our long-standing relationship with the NTA providing vital strategic transport plans and studies. The NTA estimates the new contract duration to be approximately 3-4 years.
