Project Description

Sydney Metro is Australia’s biggest public transport project and is revolutionising travel for people in the country’s most populated city.
Over the next decade, the metro system will grow to encompass 46 stations and 113km of track, helping the city’s residents go about their daily lives quickly and conveniently and enabling further growth of the conurbation.

The programme includes three distinct projects: Sydney Metro City & Southwest, which extends the Metro North West Line into Sydney CBD to Bankstown via Sydenham and will open in 2024; the Western Sydney Airport project, which will have six stations on a new line and is due to open when airline passenger services start in 2026; and Sydney Metro West, which will run from the central business district (CBD) to Greater Parramatta and is scheduled for opening by 2030.

Sydney Metro is Australia’s first fully-automated driverless railway and its only fully-accessible railway; it boasts access to real-time digital information and trains that are regular enough for a ‘turn up and go’ service. We are a trusted partner to Sydney Metro in delivering this multi-billion-dollar rail programme, acting as its integrated client-partner providing engineering solutions. We have achieved this position after fulfilling design and technical roles on the City & Southwest and Central Station projects.

  • Project Controls
  • Project Planning/Scheduling
