A city-shaping project, the 23-kilometre new railway with six metro stations will connect the Western Sydney Aerotropolis in the south with St Marys in the north – where customers can connect to the existing Sydney Trains suburban T1 Western Line. The NSW and Australian governments have a shared objective of having Sydney Metro – Western Sydney Airport operational whe the airport opens for passenger services.
CPB Contractors Ghella (CPBG) was awarded the Station Boxes and Tunnelling (SBT) Works contract for the project in December 2021. CPBG will design and build the twin 9.8-kilometre tunnels for the north and south sections of the project.
Two tunnel boring machines (TBMs) will launch from the Orchard Hills Station site and carve out the 4.3-kilometre tunnels north via Claremont Meadows to the St Marys metro station site. Another two TBMs will build the 5.5-kilometre tunnels between the Airport Business Park Station, Airport Terminal Station, Bringelly and the Aerotropolis Station sites. The TBMs are due to start work in early 2023.
CPBG will also excavate five station boxes at St Marys, Orchard Hills, Airport Business Park, Airport Terminal and Aerotropolis and two service facilities at Claremont Meadows and Bringelly.
