The development of the massive Sydney Metro project is well underway, with six companies shortlisted for two major contracts – delivery of the Victoria Cross Station and Metro line-wide works.

Victoria Cross Station in North Sydney is the first integrated station package to be shortlisted. The three tenderers shortlisted for this package include Lendlease Development Pty Limited, John Holland Charter Hall Joint Venture, and Dexus Funds Management Limited.

The new station will include:

  • New bike parking near the corner of Miller and Berry streets
  • New kiss and ride bays on Berry Street
  • Existing bus stops close to the station retained on Miller Street
  • Wayfinding signage and Sydney Metro information within the North Sydney CBD
  • A traction substation integrated into the station building (partially underground)
  • Enhancement of pedestrian infrastructure around the station (still under further investigation and consulted with Roads and Maritime Services and North Sydney Council

Three tenderers have also been shortlisted for the Metro line-wide works, including:

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.

Earlier this month, Laing O’Rourke was awarded the $955 million contract to deliver the underground platforms at Central Station and the Central Walk.

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.
