NEW WORLD OF COMMUTER TRAVEL

New contract issued for Metro
DALLAS SHERRINGHAM
THE $12B Sydney Metro City & Southwest project will provide a whole new world of commuter travel for millions of Sydney passengers in Western Sydney.

It will expand the city’s new metro railway into the CBD and beyond to Bankstown.

However the new Metro also means big bikkies for business in the west, both big and small. Many subbies and contractors will be involved in delivering the finalised project.

The NSW Government has just awarded a $1.376B contract to help deliver the new world-class system.

Transport and Infrastructure Minister Andrew Constance said this contract would extend the system across the city.

“We’re currently digging twin new metro tunnels between Chatswood and Sydenham - this is the contract that will turn these tunnels into a working railway,” Mr Constance said.

“This major investment extends metro rail from Sydney’s booming north west, delivering a new 66km railway for Sydney in 2024.”

The $1.37B line-wide contract was awarded to Systems Connect, a Joint Venture between CPB Contractors and UGL. It includes:

• 31km of underground railway track to be laid in the twin railway tunnels from Chatswood to Sydenham.
• 31km of overhead power equipment and 11 new substations to power the metro from Chatswood to Bankstown.
• Installation of 350km of high voltage, low voltage and tunnel service cabling.
• Connecting the railway tracks from the end of Sydney Metro at Chatswood to the new tracks into the city.
• The expansion of the Sydney Metro Trains Facility at Rouse Hill to accommodate 37 new trains for Sydney Metro City & Southwest.
• The construction of the Sydney Metro Trains Facility - South at Marrickville;
• Installation of tunnel equipment such as ventilation, drainage and emergency evacuation and monitoring equipment as well as the fit out of the tunnel ventilation and high voltage equipment in the seven new underground stations.

This is the seventh Sydney Metro City & Southwest contract to be awarded with 14 more to be awarded.
