Sydney Metro is Australia’s biggest public transport project, with 31 stations and 66km of new metro rail
Arcadis and Mott MacDonald have won a key role on the expansion of Sydney’s metro system.
The two firms, working in joint venture, are joint lead designers in the ‘Metron’ consortium, which includes Foster + Partners, local architect Architectus and Robert Bird Group. It will lead the engineering design of six underground metro rail stations as part of stage 2, the Sydney Metro City & Southwest project.
The expansion of Sydney Metro is Australia’s biggest public transport project, with 31 stations and 66km of new metro rail. Stage 2 will include a 30km extension of metro rail under Sydney Harbour and through a number of new stations.
Greg Steele, chief executive of Arcadis Australia Pacific, said: “Sydney Metro will be one of the most transformational projects in NSW since the Sydney Harbour Bridge and we are very excited to bring our combination of global experience and Australian depth of knowledge to the project.”
Stephen Giblett, built environment sector leader, Mott MacDonald Australia & New Zealand, added: “We are very proud to be the joint lead designers on a key part of Australia’s largest public transport project and continue to apply our global metro expertise to Australian projects.
“The Sydney Metro will truly transform this great city and the underground station design services role Metron will perform is critical to this.”
