The joint venture will independently certify a number of work packages from design through to construction and completion. These will include tunnelling, stations, integrated station development, line wide systems, trains, control systems and maintenance and operations.

Helen Williams, Executive General Manager SYSTRA Australia, said:

“The opportunity to bring the combined strength and depth of SYSTRA and KBR together is an exciting one. We look forward to bringing to life our shared values, complementary expertise and demonstrating our commitment to the success of the Sydney Metro West project.”

SYSTRA Australia will be taking forward the experience of successfully delivering independent certification services for Sydney Metro Northwest into the Sydney Metro City and Southwest components of Sydney Metro, Australia’s largest public transport project.

The Sydney Metro West project will see a new twin-tunnel railway built between the Greater Parramatta and Sydney central business districts, doubling rail capacity between the two locations.

With a length of 24 kilometres, Sydney Metro West will have nine stations: Westmead, Parramatta, Sydney Olympic Park, North Strathfield, Burwood North, Five Dock, The Bays, Pyrmont and Hunter Street.

Roughly 10,000 direct and 70,000 indirect jobs are expected to be created throughout construction. This began in 2020 and service is scheduled to begin in 2030.
