Track laying complete at Sydney Metro HQ

Published 26 July 2017

SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA - Track laying is finished at the state-of-art Sydney Metro Headquarters at Rouse Hill in a major milestone for Australia’s biggest public transport project.

New South Wales Minister for Transport and Infrastructure Andrew Constance said nine kilometres of track and nine kilometres of overhead wiring is now in place at the Sydney Metro Trains Facility, from where new world-class metro services will be operated.

“This milestone means we’re one step closer to metro services running in Sydney’s booming North West, delivering a world class commuter service for generations to come,” Mr Constance said.

The completed railway tracks at the Rouse Hill facility sit on 11,500 sleepers and 26,000 tonnes of ballast.

Across the Sydney Metro project, more than 22 kilometres of railway tracks have now been installed, including inside Australia’s longest railway tunnels between Bella Vista and Epping.

Sydney Metro opens in the first half of 2019 with a metro train every four minutes in the peak.

Plenary is part of the Northwest Rapid Transit consortium contracted to deliver the operations, trains and systems part of the A$8.3 billion project.
