Project award date
Ferrovial Construction Australia was awarded the contract to design and construct the central section of Sydney Metro West in New South Wales, Australia. The project, being undertaken in consortium with Acciona Australia, is worth AUD$1.96 billion and is one of the largest projects in the state.
The contract includes the delivery of twin 11-kilometre tunnels to connect The Bays Sation with Sydney Olympic Park Station as well as the excavation and civil works for five new stations at Sydney Olympic Park, North Strathfield, Burwood North, Five Dock and The Bays.
This Central Tunnelling Package forms part of Sydney Metro West, a new 24-kilometre line that will connect Greater Parramatta with Sydney’s central business district, transforming the city for future generations. It will connect new communities with railway services and boost employment and housing supply.
In 2024, Sydney will have 31 metro stations and more than 66 kilometres of new metro rail, revolutionising the way Australia’s biggest city travels. By the end of the decade, the network will be expanded to include 46 stations and more than 113 kilometres of world-class metro for Sydney.
