AECOM consortium wins Australia contract

Posted on July 27, 2011

An AECOM-led consortium was awarded a contract by the New South Wales Government to plan and design the North West Rail Link in Sydney, Australia.

The project includes six new stations and regular rail services over a 14-mile addition to the CityRail network from Epping to Rouse Hill in North West Sydney — linking the region with more than 300 other CityRail stations. The nine miles of tunnels between Epping and Kellyville will be the longest rail tunnels ever constructed in Sydney.

The new 14-mile rail line will help reduce congestion and provide approximately 300,000 residents in the North West area with direct rail services to Epping, Macquarie Park, Chatswood, St Leonards, North Sydney and the Central Business District.

Under the contract, AECOM is the lead technical advisor with responsibility for engineering, rail systems and architecture. The company will deliver planning; project definition; design definition; systems assurance; design concept approval; reference design; contract documentation and tender assessment phases.

The consortium also includes Parsons Brinckerhoff, Grimshaw Architects and Cox Architects.
