Bankstown Line upgrade

A $45 million contract has been awarded to a joint venture of John Holland and Laing O’Rourke to start early construction work at Bankstown Station in Sydney.

Construction work will begin immediately to deliver a new services building, install new Sydney Metro rail systems and communication equipment and convert current Sydney Trains equipment to metro standards.

Following these early works, a separate Bankstown Main Works contract will be awarded to modify Bankstown Station for Sydney Trains services and to get it ready for metro services.

The design will ensure an easy interchange for customers transferring between Sydney Metro and Sydney Trains services.
