THE Municipality of Odense, Denmark's third largest city with a population of 186,000, has awarded a contract to Parsons Brinckerhoff, Unites States, to help with project management and provide advice for the construction of the city's first light rail line.

A pre-feasibility study for the light rail scheme has been completed enabling concept design to start in August. An environmental impact assessment is due to be submitted to the Ministry of Transport by late 2013. The objective is to put the project out to tender in 2015 and to open the line in 2020.
