Project Value

  • AU$8.3 billion

Sydney Metro Northwest is delivering eight new railway stations and 4000 commuter car parking spaces to Sydney’s growing North West. Trains will run every four minutes in the peak, providing 15 trains an hour.


The Project is being delivered in three major contracts:

  • Tunnels and Station Civil Works
  • Surface and Viaduct Civil Works
  • Operations, Trains and Systems.


As part of the AU$340 million surface and viaducts civil works, four kilometres of elevated skytrain viaduct between Bella Vista and Rouse Hill will be delivered along with a landmark cable-stayed rail bridge.


Delivering Comprehensive Services

We worked closely with the main contractor assisting in the development of sustainability objectives and strategy outcomes for the project. We provided an integrated service that includes:

  • Sustainability Certification
  • Climate Change Risk Assessment and Adaptation Strategy
  • Sustainability Planning
  • Carbon and Energy Management Planning
  • Energy Efficiency
  • Renewable Energy Strategy
  • Greenhouse Emissions Inventory
  • Whole-of-life Cost Analysis
  • Sustainability Procurement


Adding Value

Working collaboratively with key stakeholders and coordinating all relevant issues with the Infrastructure Sustainability Council of Australia, we developed effective procurement policies and ensure robust supplier audits. The project has achieved a high Infrastructure Sustainability Design V1 leading rating.


Sydney Metro Northwest is on track to open in the first half of 2019.
