John Holland CEO Joe Barr said John Holland looked forward to continuing its partnership with the NSW Government to deliver the project.

“The Sydenham upgrade project will help support economic and social development in Sydney, and improve the ease with which people move around in their day-to-day lives. We have already been chosen to work with the government on the new harbour rail crossing for Sydney Metro City & Southwest,” said Mr. Barr.

“More than 100 people will be employed on the project, creating jobs and opportunities on the southern fringe of Sydney’s CBD.”

Laing O’Rourke Australia Hub Managing Director Cathal O’Rourke said the company has a long and proud history of delivering major rail infrastructure projects in NSW and across Australia.

“We are currently engaged on a number of projects across the Sydney Trains network, all of which are delivering an improved experience for commuters,” Mr. O’Rourke said.

“This city-shaping project is a critical part of the transformation of the overall Sydney Metro project, and the key meeting point of the new Sydney Metro and existing Sydney Trains networks.”
