Sydney issues tenders for 50km Metro West tunnels
As of 7th April, Sydney has issued tenders for the Sydney Metro West driverless metro line between the city centre and Parramata. Transport for NSW has invited expressions of interest for the two major infrastructure packages, which cover approximately 50 kilometers of twin-bored tunnels between Westmead and the Bays.
The first tender covers the outer section of the route between Westmead and an area near the Sydney Olympic Park. The second covers the section from Olympic Park to the Bays redevelopment zone, 3 kilometers est of the city centre. TBM work should commence in late 2022.
This will be Sydney’s second driverless metro line and will run entirely underground. It is expected to double rail capacity in the busy western corridor. The project is expected to create more than 10 000 direct and 70 000 during the construction phase.
