Hundreds of rail industry experts from across Australia and around the world today attended an industry briefing on Stage 2 of the Sydney Metro project.

With Sydney Metro Northwest, Stage 1 of Sydney Metro, well underway, the NSW Government is now getting ready to deliver Stage 2 – Sydney Metro City & Southwest.

From the end of Stage 1 at Chatswood, the new metro rail network will continue under Sydney Harbour, through new stations in the CBD and west to Bankstown.

More than 460 industry representatives from Australian and international firms attended today’s industry briefing, which detailed plans for Sydney Metro and the process for industry to contribute to the project – and take part in its delivery.

Industry representatives have come from companies based in countries including the UK, USA, Singapore, Hong Kong, Spain, South Korea, Japan, Italy, Germany, China, Austria and France to attend the briefing, which outlined the scope of the works.

When operational, Sydney Metro will ultimately have the capacity to operate trains through the CBD every two minutes in each direction with 98 per cent on-time running.
