Sydney Metro opens on 26 May 2019


Sydney Metro is Australia’s biggest public transport program delivering Australia’s first automated Metro service.

Sydney Metro North West is the first of three planned Metro projects in the city over the next decade. It delivers eight stations along 36km of standalone track with 4000 commuter car parking spaces between Tallawong (Rouse Hill) and Chatswood in Sydney’s growing North West.

The project is being delivered, operated and maintained via a Public Private Partnership (Northwest Rapid Transit) for the state government client, Transport for New South Wales/Sydney Metro.

Since 2014 SYSTRA has been providing Independent Certification services as part of a joint venture – certifying over 1000 technical packages through the Design, Manufacturing, Construction, Testing & Commissioning and Final Completion phases.

The project recently reached two significant milestones with the Independent Certifer issuing certificates of “Readiness for First Passenger Service”, and “Completion”. Along with the accreditation from the National Rail Safety Regular, the project is now ready to open on 26th May.

SYSTRA have played a key role in the success of the Sydney Metro North West earning praise from the Sydney Metro Project Director and the CEO of Northwest Rapid Transit. By consistently delivering high quality technical outcomes in a dynamic project environment over an extended period of time, SYSTRA has established a local reputation for professional, solutions focussed outcomes whilst demonstrating an ability to not only work with, but positively strengthen relationships with government and other industry partners.

“There are no downsides for SYSTRA on this project” said the project Director Frank McCormack. “We have delivered a fantastic outcome for ourselves, our clients, and the community”.
