Sydney Metro West – Systems Framework Package

Sydney Metro is inviting suitably qualified and experienced contractors to register their interest for the Sydney Metro West – Systems Frameworks Package.

Sydney Metro is Australia’s biggest public transport program. Services on Stage 1 of the network between Rouse Hill and Chatswood began in May 2019 on this new autonomous metro railway system, which is revolutionising the way Sydney travels.

Sydney Metro West is a new 24-kilometre metro line that will connect Greater Parramatta with the Sydney CBD. Stations have been confirmed at Westmead, Parramatta, Sydney Olympic Park, North Strathfield, Burwood North, Five Dock, The Bays, Pyrmont and Hunter Street (Sydney CBD). This infrastructure project will double the rail capacity between Greater Parramatta and the Sydney CBD with a travel time target between the two centres of about 20 minutes.

Scope of Works

The Systems Frameworks Packages are comprised of two concurrent tenders:

  • Tender Package 1
    • Lifts and Escalators
  • Tender Package 2
    • Building Management Control Systems (BMCS)
    • CCTV System
    • Public Address System
    • Fire Indicator Panels and Fire Detection Systems
    • Passenger Information Display System
    • Access Control System

A single ROI has been released for both Tender Package 1 and Tender Package 2. Following the ROI, each tender package will have a separate EOI and RFT Process.

For Tender Package 1, a single successful RFT tenderer will be appointed as the Lifts and Escalators Framework Contractor.

For Tender Package 2, Sydney Metro will select Framework Contractors for each system individually to cover the scope of Tender Package 2. Applicants can apply for one or more systems in the package and may be selected as the Framework Contractor for more than one system.
