Station excavation and tunnelling

In November 2022, Sydney Metro awarded John Holland CPB Contractors Ghella Joint Venture (JCG) the contract to deliver 3.5 kilometres of metro rail tunnels under Sydney Harbour between The Bays and the Sydney CBD, as well as the excavation of Pyrmont and Hunter Street stations.

These works at Pyrmont include:

  • site establishment and demolition – installing hoarding and acoustic sheds, demolishing buildings, installing ground support, utility relocations, installing staff facilities and services to the construction site
  • excavating the station shafts and associated tunnels
  • excavating the new station cavern including a crossover cavern – using three roadheaders and excavators with rock hammer attachments
  • concrete lining the station cavern and crossover cavern
  • tunnelling from The Bays to Pyrmont and through to Hunter Street in the Sydney CBD, using two tunnel boring machines
  • providing tunnelling support – storage of excavated material, ventilation, grout batching and water treatment
  • excavating and lining cross passages in the tunnels and concreting works for the tunnel inverts between Pyrmont and Hunter Street in the Sydney CBD
  • removing excavated material via trucks
