John Holland Gamuda JV shortlisted for airport metro

KUALA LUMPUR: Gamuda Bhd’s John Holland Gamuda Joint Venture has been shortlisted for the Metro railway line, which will service Greater Western Sydney and the new Western Sydney International (Nancy-Bird Walton) Airport in Australia.

The New South Wales (NSW) government had shortlisted three consortia to deliver the mega project’s tunnelling works.

The three are Bouygues Construction Australia Pty Ltd, John Holland Gamuda Joint Venture and Acciona Construction Australia Pty Ltd.

In a statement, Transport and Roads Minister Andrew Constance said the successful tunnel builder will deliver 10 kilometres of twin Metro railway tunnels and the associated excavations of station boxes.

“The station box and tunnelling contract is expected to be awarded by the end of this year, with the first of four mega tunnel boring machines expected to be in the ground by the middle of 2023,” he said.

“The Sydney Metro - Western Sydney Airport project will support 14,000 jobs, including 250 apprentices, and will inject billions into the NSW and national economies.”

The Australian and NSW governments are jointly delivering the 23km Metro railway and six stations between St Marys and the Western Sydney Aerotropolis, including two stations at the airport.
