Project Overview

Sydney Metro Northwest, formerly known as the North West Rail Link, is the first stage of Sydney Metro, Australia’s largest public transport project. The project is being delivered in three major contracts: Tunnels and Station Civil Works; Surface and Viaduct Civil Works; and Operations, Trains and Systems (OTS).

The OTS package comprises: the design, construction and commissioning of rail infrastructure (including underground, open-cut and elevated stations at eight locations, a Sydney Metro train facility, and all associated track, overhead wire structures and combined services routes); procurement of rolling stock; operation and maintenance; and financing.

Designed to meet the current and emerging transport needs of Sydney’s rapidly growing North West, Sydney Metro Northwest features a new generation of reliable, fully-automated metro trains and will transform public transport in Sydney.
