Each venture, including some project-close-out services, is worth around $150m, giving a total construction value of $2.25bn, Aecom says.
Teams working for Aecom in Africa, Australia and North America will work for Transnet, a South African state-owned company responsible for freight rail, port and other major infrastructure improvements.
John M. Dionisio, Aecom chairman and CEO said: "Building on our ongoing relationship with Transnet from projects such as the proposed Durban Digout Port, our integrated team is eager to continue partnering with this key client to implement critical infrastructure improvements."
