The Metro line-wide works package will involve laying tracks in the 15.5-kilometre tunnel from Chatswood to Sydenham, installation of electrical systems including substations as well as construction of the Sydney Metro Trains Facility South and conversion of the existing Bankstown Line to enable metro trains to run on it.
The contracts for both Victoria Cross Station and Metro line-wide works are expected to be awarded later in 2018.
Services on Sydney Metro are set to commence in the first half of 2019 on the Sydney Metro Northwest project, with metro rail to be extended under the Sydney Harbour in 2024 through the CBD and onwards to Bankstown.
