Sydney Metro City and Southwest
The Sydney Metro Northwest Project is currently under construction between Rouse Hill and Chatswood and is planned to open on schedule in quarter 2 2019. The newly formed Sydney Metro Authority has commenced construction on the dedicated underground link from Chatswood through the City to Sydenham where the service will emerge above ground and make use of the existing Bankstown Line to connect services to Bankstown. Major tunneling, lifts & escalators and multiple station construction contracts have already been let and construction is underway. The completed works will provide a word class rapid transit service connecting North Western suburbs and Bankstown to Sydney’s central business district.
In terms of project complexity there are two separable components being delivered. These are the “Greenfield” portions where the is no interface with live rail operations and the “Brownfield” areas requiring management of the complex interfaces with the operational Sydney Trains and ARTC networks interface.
Sydney Metro Authority
Rail Planning Services has been engaged directly by The Sydney Metro Authority to provide construction planning and delivery services for CSW. Rail Planning Services have partnered with Connell Griffin who are providing additional resources in the commercial contract management space. Rail Planning Services will provide Station and corridor Construction Planners, Project Managers, Project Engineers and Surveillance Officers who will ensure the complex interfaces encountered in the operational rail corridor are managed safely and without delays to current timetabled services.
The CSW Brownfields support contract commenced in early 2018 and construction support services are underway at Central and Sydenham Stations. Additional support services have been provided on the Chatswood corridor portion of the works to assist Sydney Metro in progressing with project works in this area. The Bankstown line conversion portion of the works are commencing in 2019 and will see Rail Panning Services managing the interface of complex live rail operations and multiple specialist contract works packages.
