Arcadis to help design Sydney Metro tunnel under Sydney Harbour

Sydney, New South Wales - Arcadis, the leading global Design & Consultancy firm for natural and built assets, today announced that with joint-venture partner BG&E it has won a lead design role on the Tunnel and Station Excavation (TSE) Works contract for Stage 2 of Sydney Metro – Australia’s largest public transport project.

“We are very proud to be working on one of the most transformational projects in Australian infrastructure history.”

Arcadis and BG&E will work together with John Holland CPB Ghella joint venture, which was awarded the $2.81 billion Sydney Metro City & Southwest TSE Works contract on 22 June 2017.

The Arcadis and BG&E joint-venture will provide civil and structural design services as part of the construction of the twin 15.5km long tunnels which will run from Chatswood, through the CBD and on to Sydenham, including a crossing under Sydney Harbour.

The TSE Works also includes:

  • Excavation of six new underground metro stations at Crows Nest, Victoria Cross, Barangaroo, Martin Place, Pitt Street and Waterloo
  • Tunnel dive structures at Chatswood and Marrickville
  • Surface civil works across the project.

Phil Kajewski, Managing Director – Infrastructure Australia Pacific, Arcadis: “We are very proud to be working on one of the most transformational projects in Australian infrastructure history.

“With our joint-venture partner BG&E, we will bring a combination of our global metro experience together with a long Australian heritage, going back to the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

“We are in the business of designing Australia’s future cities and project wins like this underscore our strong continued growth and commitment to creating sustainable cities.”

This project win follows the recent announcement that Arcadis won the Underground Station Design and Technical Services (USDTS) contract as part of Stage 2 of the Sydney Metro project, as joint leads in the METRON consortium with Mott MacDonald.
