The Middlesex County Improvement Authority (MCIA), in partnership with NJ Transit and the New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT), has awarded a $7 million design contract to infrastructure consulting firm AECOM for the New Brunswick Train Station renovation project. Work on the 120-year-old station located along the Northeast Corridor will cover the westbound and eastbound platforms; pedestrian transfer passages; the existing tunnel beneath the tracks; site work and landscaping; new waiting areas; entrance signage; trainway equipment; building equipment; vertical circulation elements; and other vital site-related components.

MCIA said it is spearheading the renovations on behalf of the County and NJ Transit, with the new contract forming part of the $45 million project investment funded by the State of New Jersey as part of the FY2023 budget.

$7M for design work alone seems insanely high to me. How many consultants' annual salaries does that cover?

That seems to cover everything but the actual construction (i.e., getting the project "shovel ready"), so its everything but the actual construction and may even involve pre-construction work on site (surveys, soil sampling, etc). In the NJ area, AECOM managed the entire One World Trade Center design and construction, so while they are a consultancy, they do take on real responsibilities as well.
