Ferrovial Servicios, through its UK subsidiary Amey, has acquired the transportation planning and traffic engineering consultancy Transportation Planning (International) Ltd. This acquisition, the third in a year, will aid the company to optimize delivery of its strategic transport schemes across the UK.
Through the agreement, Amey will strengthen its capability in transport planning, transport modeling and traffic engineering. It will also secure transport consultancy contracts across the UK, for key clients in Central and Local Government as well as for the private sector.

This addition will mean bringing an added value proposition to the market in addition to complementing Ameys portfolio of consulting services.
