Rouse Hill Bridge named global project of the year

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.

Railway line moved to make way for metro

A major Sydney railway line has been picked up and moved in just 48 hours, to make way for the brand new Sydney Metro.

The Sydney Trains T1 North Shore Line had to be permanently realigned, between Chatswood and Artarmon, because the existing suburban railway tracks were effectively blocking the new city-bound Sydney Metro.

A team of 250 workers completed the critical track work at Chatswood, so that Sydney Metro can be extended from the city’s north west into the Sydney CBD and beyond to Bankstown.

Upgrade complete between Epping and Chatswood

Work to upgrade the suburban railway between Epping and Chatswood to modern metro rail standards is now complete.

Customers using the metro stations at Macquarie Park, Macquarie University and North Ryde will have almost four times as many trains an hour than before as part of Sydney Metro.

Upgrading and converting the line to become part of Sydney’s new metro system was a major undertaking and a ‘project within a project’.

North West opening date announced

Sydney Metro opens on Sunday 26 May.

There are 13 railway stations between Tallawong and Chatswood and 4,000 new commuter car parking spaces.

Customers won’t need a timetable – you’ll just turn up and go.

Final commissioning of Sydney’s new generation of driverless trains is currently underway with more than 180,000km of testing complete. A trip around the Earth at the equator is 40,000km.

Pitt Street Station taking shape

Deep under the heart of the CBD, Sydney Metro’s new Pitt Street Station is quickly taking shape with three roadheader tunnelling machines excavating around the clock.

More than 116,400 tonnes of crushed rock has been excavated to form the station caverns 20 metres underneath Pitt and Castlereagh streets, where the future platforms will be located.

The Pitt Street Station caverns will be about 240 metres in length and 11.5 metres wide when finished.
