Sydney Metro awards Project Management Office Support services

17th May 2021

Australia’s biggest public transport project, Sydney Metro, has appointed global professional services firm Turner & Townsend, supported by HKA, Deloitte Australia and LogiKal to provide Project Management Office Support (PMOS) services across all projects in the Sydney Metro program.

The PMOS contract is a long-term appointment of up to six years and encompasses Sydney Metro City & Southwest, Sydney Metro West, Sydney Metro Western Sydney Airport, as well as studies into future network expansion.

By 2030, the Sydney Metro network will be expanded to include 46 stations and more than 113 kilometres of world-class metro for Sydney. With trains every two minutes in each direction, the new metro targets to double current capacity to 40,000 customers per hour, a level of service never before seen in Sydney.

Turner & Townsend, HKA, Deloitte Australia and LogiKal will work as part of a blended team with Sydney Metro. When fully mobilised, the PMOS team will reach full capacity of over 80 program and project controls professionals working across multiple contract packages.

Sydney Metro is a once-in-a-generation infrastructure project which will deliver exceptional benefits for the communities it serves by improving liveability, enhancing productivity and promoting connectivity across the Greater Sydney region. Faster journey times and an extended public transport network will allow people to be more connected to job centres and educational institutions and ultimately deliver more opportunities for communities.

Darren Munton, Turner & Townsend’s Head of Infrastructure for Australia and New Zealand said, “Our relationship with Sydney Metro and Transport for NSW extends over a decade since the inception of Sydney Metro. Over this time, we have worked tirelessly to build a reputation for delivering exceptional standards of service and working collaboratively with Sydney Metro and their key stakeholders.

“Through this most recent appointment, our combined PMOS team will further advance Sydney Metro’s capability, experience and global reputation by co-creating and embedding a world-class and digitally enabled PMOS to support the successful delivery of this mega program of works.

“All of our team are extremely proud and privileged to have the opportunity to continue to be part of Australia’s most successful transport project and to help shape Sydney for generations to come.”

We are really excited to continue on this journey with the team at Sydney Metro.
With our partners in Turner & Townsend, Deloitte and Logikal, we look forward to raising the bar in project controls and PMO services in Australia. ”
