AN ACS Group/Hochtief-led consortium has been selected as recommended developer for a $1.95 billion public-private partnership (PPP) project to build an automated people-mover at Los Angeles International Airport and operate it for 25 years.

The consortium comprises ACS Infrastructure Development and Hochtief PPP Solutions, each with an 18% stake, plus Dragados USA, Flatiron, Fluor, Balfour Beatty, and Bombardier, which will supply 44 people-mover cars. The automated people-mover will comprise a 2.2-mile elevated line ranging from 50 to 65 feet above the ground. It will have six stations and connect airport terminals with a new centralized car rental facility, new pickup and drop-off locations with airport parking, and a light rail station.

The deal is expected to close in April followed by a financing agreement in June. Construction is scheduled to be completed in early 2023.
