Motts and Arcadis win Sydney metro contract
A design team led by Mott MacDonald and Arcadis is to design six underground stations as part of the second stage of the Sydney Metro project in Australia.
As joint lead designers in the Metron consortium, they have won the Underground Station Design and Technical Services (USDTS) contract. The consortium also includes Foster & Partners, Architectus and Robert Bird Group.
Sydney Metro is Australia's biggest public transport project; it will have 31 stations and 66km of new metro rail. Stage 2 will include a 30km 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.
Greg Steele, chief executive of Arcadis Australia Pacific said: "Sydney Metro will be one of the most transformational projects in NSW since the Sydney Harbour Bridge”.
