AECOM’s Sutong Bridge project in China named “2010 Outstanding Civil Engineering Achievement” by the American Society of Civil Engineers

LOS ANGELES — (BUSINESS WIRE) — April 1, 2010 — AECOM Technology Corporation (NYSE: ACM), a leading provider of professional technical and management support services for government and commercial clients around the world, announced today that its Sutong Bridge project in China’s Jiangsu Province was selected as the world’s 2010 Outstanding Civil Engineering Achievement by the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE).

The Sutong Bridge crosses the Yangtze River, connecting the cities of Suzhou and Nantong. With a main span of 1,088 meters, it is the world’s longest cable-stayed bridge – and the first cable-stayed bridge to surpass a 1,000-meter span. Since opening to traffic during 2008, the bridge has reduced the commute between the two cities from four hours to one hour.

AECOM provided design and construction engineering services to China Communications and Construction Company, Second Navigational Engineering Bureau, for the bridge, which was one of five projects considered for the ASCE honor as part of the organization’s annual Outstanding Projects and Leaders (OPAL) awards program.

“The Sutong Bridge serves as a great example of what can be achieved when a client who is committed to the sustainable advancement of infrastructure partners with a professional technical services leader like AECOM to transform a vision into reality,” said AECOM President and Chief Executive Officer John M. Dionisio.

“The Sutong Bridge pushed the technological frontier of long-span bridge construction,” said Dionisio. “We are honored by this recognition of a critical project that balances the need to advance a society with a commitment to environmental conservation.”

This year’s OPAL awards were presented on March 25 in Washington, D.C.
