The New South Wales Government's Sydney Metro programme - the largest infrastructure scheme in Australia - begins the construction of a high frequency, autonomous metro rail service across Sydney. The programme is being delivered over three stages: Northwest, City and Southwest, and West.

Sydney Metro - Northwest ($8.3 billion)
Sydney Metro Northwest, formerly the North West Rail Link, is the first stage of Sydney Metro and will be the first fully-automated metro rail system in Australia.

Three major contracts were awarded in 2013 and 2014 to deliver and operate Sydney Metro Northwest. These include:

Tunnels and Stations Civil works
$1.15 billion contract awarded to CPB John Holland Dragados (CPBJHD), formerly Thiess John Holland Dragados on 24 June 2013. This contract involves building the 15 kilometre twin tunnels between Bella Vista and Epping.

Surface and Viaduct Civil works
$340 million contract awarded to the Salini Impregilo joint venture on 17 December 2013. This contract involves building the four-kilometre elevated skytrain between Bella Vista and Rouse Hill, including a 270-metre cable-stayed bridge over Windsor Road at Rouse Hill.

Operations, Trains and Systems (PPP)
$3.7 billion operations contract awarded to Northwest Rapid Transit on 15 September 2014. This contract involves delivering eight new railway stations, 4,000 commuter car parking spaces, Sydney’s new metro trains and upgrading the railway between Chatswood and Epping. It is the largest Public Private Partnership ever awarded in NSW.

In July 2018 Alstom were awarded a 15 year maintenance contract for Sydney Metro - Northwest, which comprises maintenance of the 22 six-car train sets, signalling systems and point machines, along with operation and maintenance of the depot. The train sets and signalling systems were also built by Alstom.

Sydney Metro - City & Southwest ($12.5 billion)
This is the second stage of the broader Sydney Metro programme. This stage will see a new 30-kilometre metro line extending from Chatswood under Sydney Harbour, through new CBD stations and southwest to Bankstown.

In June 2018, Turner & Townsend were appointed by Transport for NSW (TfNSW) as the Managed Service Provider (MSP) for the Sydney Metro City & Southwest and the Metro West final business case. Turner & Townsend will work on the final business case with HKA and Crossrail International.

Major construction is expected to begin in 2018, with services on the new line expected to open in 2024.

The circa $12.5 billion project will be delivered in two components:

- Chatswood to Sydenham: New 15.5 kilometre twin tunnels from Chatswood to Sydenham, and construction of seven new stations; and
- Sydenham to Bankstown upgrade: The upgrade of 13.5 kilometres of rail line and conversion of all 11 stations between Sydenham and Bankstown to metro standards.

While the City and Southwest project has two components, the project is split into several major work packages, which include:

- Trains, Systems, Operations and Maintenance (TSOM);
- Line-wide contracts (multiple contract packages)
- Southwest Station and Corridor Works (SSC);
- Sydenham Station and Junction Works (SSJ);
- Central Station Main Works (CSM);
- Tunnels and Stations Excavation Works (TSE); and
- Enabling Works (multiple contract packages)

The Underground Station Design and Technical Services (USDTS) contract were awarded to the Metron consortium in May 2017. Metron comprises: Arcadis, Architectus, Foster + Partners, Mott MacDonald and Robert Bird Group.

Waterloo, Pitt Street, Martin Place, Victoria Cross and Crows Nest stations will be constructed as part of Integrated Station Development Packages, while Barangaroo station will be designed by TfNSW and constructed under a separate contract. Martin Place station is subject to an unsolicited proposal from Macquarie Group.

Infrastructure Australia (IA) identifies City & Southwest as a High Priority Project on its Infrastructure Priority List

Sydney Metro - West ($10 billion)
The proposed Sydney Metro West will complement the existing T1 Western Line between the Sydney CBD and Parramatta, which is expected to be overcrowded by the early 2030s, despite ongoing upgrade works. The Government has yet to confirm the alignment or release a business case, but it is intended that new stations will be constructed at key precincts along the route including:

- Parramatta;
- Sydney Olympic Park;
- The Bays Precinct; and
- Sydney CBD.

In March 2018, the Government announced Metro West would include stations at Westmead and at an existing T1 Northern Line station - either Concord West or North Strathfield.

Stations will also be considered at:

- Camelia or Rydalmere;
- North Burwood or Five Dock;
- Kings Bay; and
- Pyrmont.

The announcement also flagged potential future extensions of the line west from Westmead to the Western Sydney Aerotropolis, explored through the Western Sydney Rail Needs Study, as well as the possibility of a south-east line, from the Sydney CBD via Zetland.

An initial delivery strategy for Metro West was released in April 2018, which comprised several packages, including:

- Operations;
- Line-wide, rail systems, rolling stock and depot;
- Stations and associated developments (multiple contract packages);
- Tunnels (two contracts)- Westmead to The Bays Precinct, and The Bays Precinct to Sydney CBD; and
- Enabling and other works (multiple contract packages).

The second round of industry consultation was conducted from 26 March - 18 May, with feedback sought on:

- the distribution of works and procurement models used in the initial delivery strategy;
station locations; and
- possible precinct developments including options to utilise non-government land in partnership with the private sector.

The preferred alignment and delivery strategy are expected to be announced in late-2018 or early-2019.

The 2018-19 NSW Budget saw $3 billion from the Restart NSW fund reserved for early works, land acquisition and tunneling of Metro West, with $28.1 million allocated in FY2018-19 to progress planning and final business case development. The Government also announced they intend start construction of Metro West in the next term of Government, subject to business case assessment and the result of the State election in March 2019.

Preliminary estimates place the capital cost of the project at around $10 billion.

In the State Infrastructure Strategy 2018-2038, Infrastructure NSW notes Sydney Metro West should be the NSW Government's priority rail network extension project.

IA identifies Sydney Metro West as a High Priority Initiative on its Infrastructure Priority List

Delivery
In April 2018 the NSW Government introduced a Bill to Parliament to establish the Sydney Metro Authority to oversee design, construction and operation of Sydney Metro. The authority sits within the NSW Transport cluster and operates in a similar manner to Sydney Trains. Passing of the Bill in May 2018 subsequently saw the Authority come into effect in July 2018 with the existing Sydney Metro Delivery Office under TfNSW transitioned into the Authority.
