In our role as General Consultant, the SMEC RITES JV will oversee the management and implementation of the project, whilst adding knowledge transfer and capability to the client team.

Leveraging our joint history of collaboration, the team will deploy customised reporting tools to improve interface management and minimise risk.
SMEC Executive Director Andrew McKune said,
“We are thrilled to collaborate with Haryana Rail Infrastructure Development Corporation, together we are committed to delivering best-in-class infrastructure. Haryana Orbital Rail will showcase safety, sustainability, and efficiency – vastly improving connectivity for passengers and freight across the entire region.”
Project funding has been secured from the Asian Infrastructure Bank, with detailed alignment review and land acquisition already underway.
Key elements of the SMEC RITES scope:
SMEC has partnered with Oriental Consultants Global (OCG) to assist the Department of Transport, Communications & Infrastructure of the Federated States of Micronesia (FSM) in undertaking project prioritization, readiness, and pilot-testing to prepare for the Asian Development Bank (ADB)-financed Sustainable Road Infrastructure Investment Project (SRIIP).
SMEC has been engaged to supervise civil works for upgrading the Central Cross Island Road (CCIR) in Samoa. The CCIR is one of the main economic arteries on Upolu Island and one of several key roads damaged when Tropical Cyclone Evan struck the Pacific Island nation in 2012. The project is being carried out in association with local sub-consultant MMSM Ltd for the Land Transport Authority (LTA) of Samoa and is funded by the Asian Development Bank (ADB).
The Uzbekistan Ministry of Water Resources has appointed SMEC as Project Implementation Consultant for the Climate Adaptative Water Resources Management project. The project will combine investment from the Republic of Uzbekistan government and the Asian Development Bank to improve climate resilience in the Aral Sea Basin.
