The three groups are:
- Laing O’Rourke Australia Construction;
- CPB Contractors and John Holland joint venture; and
- Lendlease Engineering /Lendlease Building.
The project to help revitalise the station also includes delivering an underground concourse and Sydney Metro platforms. The concourse, called Central Walk, will improve connections between trains, buses, light rail and the new Sydney Metro.
Central is the backbone of Sydney’s public transport network, with more than 250,000 people passing through the station every day. That number is expected to grow to 450,000 in the next two decades.
The contract is expected to be awarded in the first quarter of next year as part of the Sydney Metro City & Southwest project, which is Stage 2 of the Sydney Metro development.
