Metron wins rail project underneath Sydney Harbour

A contract to undertake Sydney’s biggest public transport project has been awarded to the Metron consortium.

The second stage of the Sydney Metro project will be completed with the help of Metron design firms Arcadis and Mott MacDonald, as part of a joint venture.

The Underground Station Design and Technical Services (USDTS) contract involves a 30km extension of the metro rail under Sydney Harbour and through new stations in the city’s central business district.

Metron will lead the engineering design of six underground metro rail stations as part of the Sydney Metro City and Southwest project.

“Sydney Metro will be one of the most transformational projects in NSW since the Sydney Harbour Bridge and we are very excited to bring our combination of global experience and Australian intel to the project,” said Anthony Venturini, managing director for Building and Urban Development at Arcadis Australia Pacific.

“This win reinforces the strength of the Arcadis Australia Pacific business and continues our strong growth through winning nation-building projects.”

In total the Sydney Metro project will include 31 stations and 66km of new metro line.

“The Sydney Metro will truly transform this great city,” Stephen Giblett, Built Environment Sector Leader at Mott MacDonald, added.
