Transport for New South Wales (TfNSW), the state transportation department, is delivering the largest transport infrastructure program Australia has ever seen, the A$41.4 billion Sydney Metro project over four years to keep Sydney moving. Sydney Metro comprises various stages, including: Northwest, City and Southwest, and West.
This stage comprises about 23 kilometres (km) of heavy rail line between Epping and Rouse Hill, including eight new stations, 15km of twin tunnels, a 4km-long elevated viaduct, a stabling facility, 4,000 commuter car parking spots, and bus, taxi, kiss and ride, and pedestrian and cycling facilities at all stations. AECOM, with Parsons Brinkerhoff and architects COX and Grimshaw, was the Technical Advisor for the Engineering, Rail Systems and Architecture and Rapid Transit Integration components. AECOM undertook all necessary design works to produce a concept design, reference design and contractual documentation for the project.
