Arcadis and joint venture partner Mott MacDonald as joint lead designers in the METRON consortium have won the Underground Station Design and Technical Services (USDTS) contract as part of Stage 2 of the Sydney Metro project.
With 31 stations and 66km of new metro rail, Sydney Metro is Australia’s biggest public transport project. Stage 2 will include a 30 kilometre extension of metro rail under Sydney Harbour and through new CBD stations.
METRON will lead the engineering design of six underground metro rail stations as part of Stage 2, the Sydney Metro City & Southwest project. The METRON design consortium includes global architecture house Foster + Partners, local architect Architectus, and engineers Arcadis, Mott MacDonald and Robert Bird Group.
