This project by Salini Impregilo achieved a 'Leading' As Built v1.0 IS Rating.
The $8.3 billion Sydney Metro Northwest is Australia’s biggest public transport project and a priority infrastructure investment for the NSW Government. It is the first stage of Sydney Rapid Transit, the city’s new rapid transit railway network.
The Sydney Metro Northwest will deliver eight new railway stations, 4,000 commuter car parking spaces and five existing stations upgraded to rapid transit standards. When the Sydney Metro Northwest opens in the first half of 2019, there will be a train every four minutes in the peak – that’s 15 trains an hour. As Australia’s first fully automated railway, customers won’t need a timetable – they’ll just turn up and go.
