Sydney Metro City & Southwest is Stage 2 of Sydney Metro – Australia’s biggest public transport project.
CIMIC Group companies UGL and Pacific Partnerships, as part of the Northwest Rapid Transit Consortium (NRT), will operate and maintain the full metro railway from Rouse Hill to Bankstown – in total 66 kilometres of rail and 31 metro stations.
The $3.7 billion NRT Public Private Partnership (PPP) contract, which was awarded in 2014 for Sydney Metro Northwest (Stage 1), has been extended to Stage 2 (City & Southwest) to deliver a seamless customer experience on the new metro system.
The PPP contract includes UGL delivering the radio system and, through its stake in Metro Trains Sydney, extending its existing services on the newly opened Metro North West Line to the currently under construction Sydney Metro City & Southwest line for a period of 10 years commencing from 2024.
As an existing investor in the Metro North West Line operations contract, Pacific Partnerships will provide a further equity investment to the NRT PPP.
An innovative multi-billion-dollar infrastructure program of many firsts, Sydney Metro is delivering Australia’s first driverless trains, Australia’s first fully-accessible railway and Australian-first customer safety technology like platform screen doors.
