The New South Wales Government's Sydney Metro programme - the largest infrastructure scheme in Australia - sees 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 Impregilo-Salini 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, 4000 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.

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 July 2017, Infrastructure Australia listed the project as a High Priority Project in its Infrastructure Priority List.

Major construction works are 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 (mutliple 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);
- Stations, Mechanical and Electrical Works (STME); and
- Enabling Works (multiple contract packages)

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

Sydney Metro - West ($10 billion)
The Government has yet to confirm the alignment for the proposed Western extension from the Sydney CBD to Parramatta, 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.

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

The Central Station Main Works contract is for the connection of the new Sydney Metro to existing Central Station transit services. 

The contract is being awarded separately to the rest of the Sydney Metro project as a dedicated construction contract due to the complexity of the works required. The contract will include:

-the Metro Station Works, comprising a new Metro Station below existing platforms 12 to 15, and associated modifications to existing infrastructure;
- the Central Station Works, comprising adjustments to existing infrastructure, to connect the Metro Station Works to the existing Central Station; and
- the Central Walk Works comprising new infrastructure, and adjustments to existing infrastructure, to connect the Metro Station Works with Chalmers Street via a new underground concourse.

Central Walk is a new 19 metre wide underground concourse to connect Sydney Metro directly with the existing Sydney Trains and NSW Trains platforms, Sydney buses and the under construction light rail line on Chalmers Street. It is part of a wider Central Station precinct revitalisation being led by Transport for New South Wales under the overarching Central Eveleight Urban Transformation Strategy developed by Urban Growth NSW.

Infrastructure Australia lists the redevelopment of Central Station as Prioirity Initiative.

Expressions of Interest for the Central Station Main Works were called for in March 2017, with three groups shortlisted to tender for the project:

- Laing O’Rourke Australia Construction Pty Ltd;
- CPB Contractors Pty Ltd and John Holland Pty Ltd Joint Venture; and
- Lendlease Engineering Pty Ltd/Lendlease Building Pty Ltd.

Construction is scheduled to begin in mid-2018 and take five years to complete.

The NSW Government is using an incentivised target cost contract.

The Sydney Metro City & Southwest project - the second stage of the broader Sydney Metro - will see a new 30 kilometre metro line extending from Chatswood under Sydney Harbour, through new CBD stations and southwest to Bankstown.

One the largest packages of work - the Tunnel and Stations Excavation Works (TSE) - will see the construction of 15.5 kilometres of twin tunnels and rail lines between Chatswood and Sydenham, as well as civil works for six new metro stations along the route.

The TSE package includes:

- Demolition and site preparation (via novation to TSE Contractor);
- Tunnel boring and lining;
- Cavern mining and lining;
- Excavation of station shafts (extent varies at different station locations); and
- Station structure at Barangaroo only

In June 2017, the NSW Government announced that the John Holland CPB Ghella Joint Venture had been awarded the design and construct contract to deliver the project.

The tunnels will be excavated by five tunnel boring machines (TBMs) between Chatswood and Sydenham, including a specialised TBM to build the tunnels beneath Sydney Harbour.

A Ferrovial, Acciona Ltd and BAM Joint Venture were the unsuccessful consortium also shortlisted for the project. Tenders were received from these shortlisted parties in January 2017.

In August 2017 an Arcadis BG&E joint venture were awarded a lead design role for the package of works and will work together with the John Holland CPB Ghella joint venture. Arcadis is also involved in the Underground Station Design and Technical Services (USDTS) contract as joint-lead with Mott MacDonald of the METRON consortium, which were awarded the USDTS contract in May 2017.

Early works, including the demolition of buildings for the new CBD stations began in August 2017. Main construction works including tunnel boring are scheduled to commence in 2018.

SECTOR: Rail
JURISDICTION: NSW
PROCUREMENT APPROACH: Unknown
TYPE: Greenfield

The NSW Government has announced a concept plan for a new underground metro railway connecting the CBDs of Parramatta and Sydney. The proposed Sydney Metro West will complement the existing T1 Western Line, which is expected to be overcrowded by the early 2030s, despite ongoing upgrade works.

The Government has yet to confirm the alignment for the proposed metro railway 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.

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

The proposed metro railway will integrate with the wider public transport network in both Sydney and Parramatta CBDs, including interchanges with Parramatta Light Rail and the Sydney Trains network.

The indicative timeline will see Transport for NSW begin a programme of community engagement in early 2017. The request for proposal stage is scheduled for late 2017, with proposals to be assessed over 2018. A preferred alignment is expected to be announced in late 2018.

The NSW Government intends for Sydney Metro West to be operational in the second half of the 2020s.

TfNSW is holding community information sessions on the proposed study area between Parramatta and the Sydney CBD over July and August

Southern Section (Stage 1): Guildford Road to Reid Highway

The Southern Section will provide an improved link from Collier Road through to Reid Highway via the Tonkin Highway.

Key components of the project include:

- upgrading the Tonkin Highway from four lane to a six lane freeway;
- new interchanges at Collier Road and Morley Drive;
- a new flyover at Benara Road;
- new pedestrian and cycling facilities.

In January 2016, John Holland was awarded the contract to deliver the Southern Section. Construction started in mid 2016.
