Final Contract Awarded for Sydney Metro Western Sydney Airport

The Parklife Metro consortium has been awarded the third and final major contract for the Sydney Metro — Western Sydney Airport project.

The consortium will deliver the Stations, Systems, Trains, Operations and Maintenance (SSTOM) contract for the joint Australian and NSW government project.

The scope of this contract includes 12 new metro trains, six new stations between St Marys and the new Aerotropolis, core rail systems and the construction of the Orchard Hills maintenance facility.

Parklife Metro will also operate and maintain the Sydney Metro — Western Sydney Airport line for 15 years after it becomes operational.

The Australian and NSW governments anticipate that the line will be operational in time for the opening of the new Western Sydney International Airport.

Preparations for this part of the project are already underway, with tunnelling from the airport to the Aerotropolis site set to commence in 2023.

The Sydney Metro — Western Sydney Airport has also become the first rail infrastructure project in Australia to commit to being certified carbon-neutral from the start of construction through to operation.
