Sydney Metro Airport Project Shortlist Announced
Australia’s Sydney Metro has shortlisted two companies for executing construction work on a new metro railway line under the Sydney Metro-Western Sydney Airport project.
The new metro line will connect Greater Western Sydney and the new Western Sydney International (Nancy-Bird Walton) Airport.
The shortlisted firms for the contract of surface and civil alignment works are CPB Contractors and Acciona Construction Australia.
Sydney Metro stated that the winning tenderer will be responsible for constructing more than 10km of viaducts, bridges and embankments.
These are meant to support railway lines and other related infrastructure.
Several civil engineering trades and professional services will be employed for this contract such as steel-fixers and concrete workers, piling contractors, crane operators, general labourers, pre-cast operators, drainage and ground workers, and more.
The contract will also include the employment of earthmoving plant operators, truck drivers, surveillance officers and security guards.
Overall, this project is expected to create around 14,000 construction job opportunities.
