Tunnelling on the Sydney Metro West project is ramping up, with preparation works at The Bays nearing completion.

In preparation for the relaunching of the two tunnel boring machines (TBMs) Daphne and Beatrice, precast tunnelling segments have been delivered to the site to support tunnelling activity from The Bays to Sydney Olympic Park. These are the final two of six TBMs completing works on the project.

TBMs Beatrice and Daphne launched last year from the western side of The Bays station box. Both machines have progressed significantly in their tunnelling journey, having installed approximately 30,732 segments to line the new tunnel walls.

At the eastern end of the site, work has commenced to prepare the 32-metre-deep station box for the launch of two new TBMs from The Bays to tunnel under Darling Harbour towards the city in mid-2024.

The Bays Station will deliver rail transport to the area for the first time, providing a connection to the Sydney CBD and western Sydney.

The Sydney Metro West project will deliver a new 24 kilometre metro line with stations at Westmead, Parramatta, Sydney Olympic park, North Strathfield, Burwood North, Five Dock, The Bays, Pyrmont and Hunter Street in the Sydney CBD.
