A joint venture (JV) between Laing O’Rourke and John Holland has bagged a $240m contract to upgrade Sydenham Station for Sydney Metro.
Scope of work includes signalling works, utility relocations along with train control systems installation. Construction work on the project is expected to commence in 2018.
John Holland CEO Joe Barr said: “The Sydenham upgrade project will help support economic and social development in Sydney, and improve the ease with which people move around in their day-to-day lives. We have already been chosen to work with the Government on the new harbour rail crossing for Sydney Metro City & Southwest.”
“More than 100 people will be employed on the project, creating jobs and opportunities on the southern fringe of Sydney’s CBD.”
Laing O’Rourke Australia hub managing director Cathal O’Rourke added: “This city-shaping project is a critical part of the transformation of the overall Sydney Metro project, and the key meeting point of the new Sydney Metro and existing Sydney Trains networks.”
