North West Rail Link
The North West Rail Link (NWRL) will initially operate between Cudgegong Road and Chatswood consisting of eight new stations between Cudgegong Road and Epping. There will be approximately 15.5 kilometres of tunnels from Epping to Bella Vista, a 4.0 kilometre elevated section between Bella Vista and Rouse Hill and conversion of the existing Epping to Chatswood Rail Link (ECRL) to suit the rapid transit system. The first stage of the rapid transit system (known as Sydney’s Rail Future (SRF) Stage 3) will commence with the completion of the NWRL. The Live Rail works are being delivered under both TfNSW ECRL enabling works and OpCo (OTS PPP Contract) conversion works.

The NWRL includes both greenfield and brownfield works, in particular the conversion of an existing Sydney Trains rail system in tunnel that currently serves a heavily utilised rail corridor. The roles of Rail Construction Specialist and earlier role of Live Rail Constructability were undertaken by Rail Planning Services using top industry resources, clear communication with a dynamic approach to problem solving and strong team culture within the integrated client project team. Specific scope targets included:
- Ensuring that ‘true’ scope is captured
- Identify any Enabling Works required
- Have a ‘roadmap’ of stages & possessions required
- Ensure that there is a constructability reviews undertaken on internal and external designs
- Manage stakeholder expectations
- Identify critical resource requirements
- Consider commissioning requirements
The NWRL project is entering the delivery phase and Rail Planning Services has teamed up to win a 5 year contract to undertake performance management of the main Operations, Trains and Services PPP Contract. This is a natural progression to the strong performance of Rail Planning Services in scoping and planning the delivery during the concept design phase and procurement processes.
Rail Planning Services remain part of a select group of suppliers with a high level of client trust and reliance to delivery this world class rapid transit system for Sydney and NSW.
