People represented companies based in countries including the UK, USA, Singapore, Hong Kong, Spain, South Korea, Japan, Italy, Germany, China, Austria and France were at the briefing, which outlined the scope of the works.
“Sydney Metro Northwest, Stage 1 of Sydney Metro, is well and truly under way and the NSW Government is now getting ready to deliver Stage 2 – Sydney Metro City & Southwest,” said minister for transport and infrastructure Andrew Constance.
More than 460 industry representatives heard detailed plans for Sydney Metro and information about the process for industry to contribute to the project and take part in its delivery.
“We’ve shown we can work together to deliver Stage 1 of our city’s new metro rail network – now it’s time to hear industry’s views on how to deliver Stage 2 as quickly as possible, bringing with it brand new metro rail services for thousands more Sydney customers,” said Constance.
From the end of Stage 1 at Chatswood, the new metro rail network will continue under Sydney Harbour, through new stations in the central business district and west to Bankstown.
