NSW Event – Sydney Metro
September 24, 2019 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm UTC+10
Sydney Metro, together with our tunnelling Contractor, will provide more information and details on Australia’s biggest public transport project and the largest urban rail infrastructure investment in the nation’s history.
Services started on the North West Metro in May 2019, with 13 metro stations and 4,000 new commuter car parking spaces. From Sydney’s north west, metro rail is being extended under Sydney Harbour, through new underground city stations and south west to Bankstown. In 2024, Sydney will have 31 metro railway stations and a 66km standalone metro railway system.
Sydney Metro City & Southwest works are underway. Excavation of new station locations in North Sydney and the CBD is well in progress, with more than 13 kilometres of new metro tunnels between Chatswood and Sydenham being built. Major civil works at Central Station are taking shape, and early works have commenced to upgrade the Bankstown Line to metro style operations.
Oliver Fried, Sydney Metro Program Technical Director, will provide an overview of Sydney Metro. In particular, he will detail the technical features, operations, conditions monitoring and asset management of the recently opened North West Metro. An update on the progress of the City & Southwest project will also be shared, along with an explanation of the works underway to deliver the new metro platforms under Central Station as well as the landmark Central Walk.
Stuart Simmonds, John Holland CPB Ghella Joint Venture (JHCPBG) Senior Design Manager, will share technical elements of tunnel design and construction, insights into tunnelling under Sydney Harbour and provide an update on the progress of tunnelling and excavation works undertaken between Chatswood and Sydenham.
