Tender Details

Sydney Metro invites suitably qualified and experienced contractors to register their interest for the Sydney Metro West – Parramatta Enabling Works.

Sydney Metro is Australia’s biggest public transport program. Services on Stage 1 of the network between Rouse Hill and Chatswood started in May 2019 on this new stand-alone metro railway system, which is revolutionising the way Sydney travels.

Sydney Metro West is a new 24-kilometre metro line that would connect Greater Parramatta with the Sydney CBD. Stations have been confirmed at Westmead, Parramatta, Sydney Olympic Park, North Strathfield, Burwood North, Five Dock, The Bays, Pyrmont and the Sydney CBD. Further planning is underway to determine the location of the Pyrmont and Sydney CBD stations.

This infrastructure project will double the rail capacity between Greater Parramatta and the Sydney CBD with a travel time target between the two centres of about 20 minutes

The Parramatta Enabling Works is a package of demolition, utilities relocation and civil enabling works that will be procured and delivered in advance of the Sydney Metro West - Western Tunneling Package (WTP) at the Parramatta Station site.

Sydney Metro will conduct an Industry Briefing on the Parramatta Enabling Works on Friday 5 February 2021 at 11:00AM AEDT.
