The New South Wales government is spending approximately AU$3.6bn over the next four years for project development, property acquisition and early construction phases of the NWRL.
Jacobs was selected for two of three major contracts on the project: the tunnel and station civil works contract (TSC) and the surface and viaduct civil works contract (SVC).
Under the terms of the contracts, Jacobs is providing project and contract management services as a member of the Transport for New South Wales (TfNSW) integrated project team. Jacobs’ scope of work includes contract delivery services for 23km of new rail line, including 15.5km of twin tunnel and 7.5km of surface and viaduct works, plus the civil works for eight new stations.
TfNSW is a government agency that provides transport services within New South Wales, where several large rail projects are currently being implemented. The NWRL is the first rail line in Sydney to provide a fully automated rapid transit system.
