Senior Consultant | Sydney and Sydney Surrounds
The NSW Government is delivering Sydney Metro West, a new underground metro railway which will double rail capacity between Parramatta and the Sydney CBD, with a target travel time of about 20 minutes between the two centres.
Sydney Metro West stations have been confirmed at Westmead, Parramatta, Sydney Olympic Park, North Strathfield, Burwood North, Five Dock, The Bays, Pyrmont and Hunter Street in the Sydney CBD.
Tunnelling for Sydney Metro West will be delivered under three packages:
- Western Tunnelling Package (Westmead to Sydney Olympic Park)
- Central Tunnelling Package (Sydney Olympic Park to The Bays)
- Eastern Tunnelling Package (The Bays to Sydney CBD)
Gamuda Australia and Laing O'Rourke Consortium (GLC) will deliver the AUD$2.16 billion Sydney Metro West - Western Tunnelling Package.
The Western Tunnelling Package scope includes:
- Twin 9km tunnels from Sydney Olympic Park to Westmead;
- A Tunnel Boring Machine launch site at Rosehill, tunnelling first toward Sydney Olympic Park and relaunched from Rosehill toward Westmead;
- Excavation for a services facility and crossover structure at Rosehill to allow provision for fresh air ventilation and emergency egress;
- Tunnel portal and dive excavation at Clyde Services and Maintenance Facility;
- Earthworks, retaining structures, drainage and utilities corridor for the Clyde Maintenance Facility;
- Excavation and civil works for Parramatta and Westmead Stations; and
- A segment manufacturing facility at Eastern Creek constructing over 60,000 segments.
The Sydney Metro West project will support a growing city and deliver world-class metro services to more communities, providing a fast and frequent connection between Greater Parramatta and the Sydney CBD.
GLC is keen to work with local businesses, stakeholders and the community to build our part of this vital piece of the metro network.
Sydney Metro West will double rail capacity between Greater Parramatta and the Sydney CBD, transforming Sydney for generations to come. This once in a century infrastructure investment, will reduce commuting times to around 20 minutes between the two centres, link new communities to rail services, and support employment growth and housing supply.
