Sydney Metro’s landmark new railway bridge over Windsor Road at Rouse Hill has been awarded global project of the year by a prestigious international engineering organisation.

The US-based Engineering News-Record described the bridge as elegant, innovative and sustainable.

The 270m curved cable-stayed railway bridge, similar in design to Sydney’s Anzac Bridge, is the first of its kind built in Australia.

The project was named ENR’s Project of the Year as well as winning the Global Best Project award for the railway sector. It was one of 23 projects from 14 countries to be selected by a jury of global engineering experts.

The judges said about the bridge and the 4km elevated skytrain viaduct leading to it: “An elegant and sustainable rail project utilizing innovative construction techniques was selected by the panel of judges and ENR editors as the Project of the Year.”

Train testing started on the bridge earlier this year.
