Sydney Metro, Australia
Pushing forward with a world-class metro system for Sydney.
Sydney Metro is Australia’s biggest public transport project, and by 2030, the metro network will be expanded to include 46 stations and more than 113 kilometres of track. With the capacity for a train every two minutes under the centre of Sydney, the new metro can carry 40,000 customers per hour, a level of service never before seen in Sydney.
Date started: 2011
Completion date: Ongoing
Client type: Infrastructure
Key services: Project management, cost management and programme management.
In May 2019, the first phase of the project, Sydney Metro Northwest, opened its doors for the first time, on time and under budget. In its first year, the Metro North West Line carried almost 20 million customers.
Having played a significant role in supporting the initial phase, we have recently been awarded a long-term, portfolio-wide contract to support further maturing a world-class and digitally enabled Project Management Office service (PMO-S). This contract covers all the Sydney Metro projects, including Sydney Metro City & Southwest, Sydney Metro West, Sydney Metro-Western Sydney Airport, as well as studies into future network expansion. We will be supported by HKA, Deloitte Australia and LogiKal in the process.
Our PMO-S services include OPEX and CAPEX cost planning and estimating, cost management, change management, risk management, schedule management, reporting and document management, as well as specialist programme management subject matter expertise.
Sydney Metro is a once-in-a-generation infrastructure programme which will deliver exceptional benefits for the communities it serves by improving liveability, enhancing productivity and promoting connectivity across the Greater Sydney region. Faster journey times and an extended public transport network will allow people to be more connected to job centres and educational institutions and ultimately deliver more opportunities for communities.
