NSW Government: The NSW Government today awarded a $1.376 billion contract to help deliver the new world-class Sydney Metro, expanding the city’s new metro railway into the CBD and beyond to Bankstown.

Transport and Infrastructure Minister Andrew Constance today welcomed this major investment.

“We’re currently digging twin new metro tunnels between Chatswood and Sydenham - this is the contract that will turn these tunnels into a working railway,” Mr Constance said.

“This major investment extends metro rail from Sydney’s booming north west, delivering a new 66 kilometre railway for Sydney in 2024.”

The $1.376 line-wide contract was awarded to Systems Connect (as an unincorporated Joint Venture between CPB Contractors and UGL) and includes:

“As part of our plan to improve transport, new metro rail will help give people more choice on how they get around Sydney,” Mr Constance said.

Due to the massive scale of the Sydney Metro City & Southwest project, the final contract value may vary due to ongoing fine-tuning and optimisation involving the 14 other major contracts.

This is the seventh Sydney Metro City & Southwest contract to be awarded.

The Sydney Metro City & Southwest project budget range has been set at $11.5 billion to $12.5 billion.

The final project budget will be confirmed once all major contracts are awarded, following the same process used for the $8.3 billion Sydney Metro Northwest.
