The New South Wales government awarded the contract, which involves using five TBMs to build twin 15.5km tunnels and carrying out associated civil works on Stage 2 of the Sydney Metro project. CPB Contractors and John Holland have 45% stakes in the JV, with Ghella holding the remaining 10%.
The tendering process had begun in April last year (link opens in new tab).
CPB Contractors managing director Román Garrido said: “Our team is focused on ensuring that all objectives for this significant major project are achieved, including sustainable design and construction methodologies, opportunities for local workers and businesses, and a socially inclusive procurement strategy.”
Tunnel and station excavation works are expected to start in coming weeks with the contract to conclude in mid-2021.
