Engineering firms Arcadis and Mott MacDonald have won the Underground Station Design and Technical Services contract, which will see the two companies work as joint lead designers within the Metron consortium.

The Metron design consortium also includes global architecture house Foster + Partners, local architect Architectus, and engineers Arcadis, Mott MacDonald and Robert Bird Group.

The dual consultancies will hold primary responsibility for the engineering design of six underground metro rail stations for Stage 2 of the Sydney Metro project, as well as a 30 kilometre extension of metro rail under Sydney Harbour and through new CBD stations.

“Sydney Metro will be one of the most transformational projects in NSW since the Sydney Harbour Bridge and we are very excited to bring our combination of global experience and Australian intel to the project,” remarked Anthony Venturini, managing director of building and urban development, Arcadis Australia Pacific.

“This win reinforces the strength of the Arcadis Australia Pacific business and continues our strong growth through winning nation-building projects,” he said.

With a total of 31 stations and 66 km of new metro rail overall to be constructed, Sydney Metro is Australia’s biggest public transport project. 

“We are very proud to be the joint lead designers on a key part of Australia’s largest public transport project and continue to apply our global metro expertise to Australian projects,” added Stephen Giblett, built environment sector leader, Mott MacDonald Australia & New Zealand.

“The Sydney Metro will truly transform this great city and the underground station design services role METRON will perform is critical to this,” he concluded.
