25 March 2018 – Mumbai, India – Access to a new resource has been added to the PM World Library on the subject of project management in rail transport industries. The new resource is titled “The Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro): Project Management Plan”.

The Program Management Plan (PMP) was developed by the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority(Metro) in order to address the projects and transportation improvements in the Los Angeles country. This plan (Los Angeles County Traffic Improvement Plan (LACTIP) or “Measure M”) helped the Metro and serves as strategic plan framework to implement and manage the transportation infrastructure. The PMP summarizes program scope, schedule, and budget; provides organizational information for control systems, processes, responsibilities, and authority; describes agency policies, procedures, and interrelationships; establishes mechanisms for managing technical and financial risks and demonstrates stakeholder accountability and transparency.

The goals of Measure M include easing traffic congestion, improving freeway traffic flow; expanding rail and rapid transit systems and improving system connectivity; repaving local streets, repairing potholes, and synchronizing signals; making public transportation more accessible, convenient and affordable for seniors, students, and the disabled; earthquake retrofitting bridges and keeping the transit and highway system safe and in good working condition; embracing technology and innovation; creating jobs, reducing pollution and generating local economic benefits; providing accountability and transparency by protecting and monitoring the public’s investment.

The overall program budget for the first 40 years focuses on Capital Project Delivery which includes $41.8 billion Transit Construction, $2.39 billion Metro State of Good Repair, and $20.33 billion Highway Construction. The Measure M Program Master Schedule outlines project delivery across the lifecycle including planning and environmental analysis, preliminary engineering and final design, contract procurement and real estate acquisition, construction management, testing, and start-up as well as outlines opportunities for acceleration of projects.
