SYSTRA has been awarded an Independent Certification Services contract in Australia for the Sydney Metro West project in a Joint Venture with KBR.
As part of this package, the JV will independently certify several work packages, including tunnelling, stations, integrated station development, line wide systems, trains, control systems, maintenance and operations through design, construction, and completion.
“The opportunity to bring the combined strength and depth of SYSTRA and KBR together is an exciting one. We look forward to bringing to life our shared values, complementary expertise and demonstrating our commitment to the success of the Sydney Metro West project.“ Helen Williams, Systra Australia's executive general manager
Solid experience on the sydney metro
SYSTRA Australia will be taking forward the experience of successfully delivering Independent Certification services for Sydney Metro Northwest into the Sydney Metro City & Southwest components of Sydney Metro, Australia’s largest public transport project.
The Sydney Metro West project will see a new twin-tunnel railway built between Greater Parramatta and its Central Business District (CBD) and the Sydney CBD, doubling rail capacity between the two locations. New communities will be connected to rail services and in turn increase housing supply and employment, with about 10,000 direct and 70,000 indirect jobs expected to be created throughout construction.
The project will revitalise community spaces and enhance Sydney’s liveability and culture, providing better access to employment, health, and education centres as well as major sporting and entertainment precincts.
