Transport for NSW engaged the design joint venture of WSP and AECOM, with architectural support from Cox and HASSELL toghether with constructability support from Rail Planning services as Technical Advisors for the Sydney Metro stage 2 works.
The proposal for work also includes the transformation of 40 percent of George Street, through the development of a pedestrian zone between Hunter and Bathurst streets.
During Stage I, WSP provided strategic planning approvals advice to Transport for NSW (TfNSW) to determine the likely approvals pathway for the project.
We also provided environmental and planning input into the development of the definition design, which involved coordinating an options assessment process for various project elements.
During Stage II, WSP prepared the Supporting Documentation for the SSI Application, followed by a large and complex Environmental Impact Statement (EIS), as well as the Submissions Report, which includes a Preferred Infrastructure Report.
During the process we managed a number of specialist subconsultants for heritage, visual impact, social impact, economic impact, and planted trees.
Specialist assessments for traffic, transport and access, and noise and vibration and other environmental issues were also incorporated into the EIS.
WSP maintained a close and collaborative relationship with the TfNSW project team throughout the project to ensure the project deliverables were delivered within budget and on time, within a compressed program.
