Sydney Metro has shortlisted three companies to supply customer access technology on the Bankstown line.
The shortlisted contractors will install mechanical gap fillers and platform screen doors as part of the Sydney Metro upgrade of the 10 stations between Marrickville and Bankstown.
The three shortlisted companies are Gilgen Door Systems AG, Hyundai Movex Co. Ltd, and Kyosan Electric Manufacturing Co. Ltd.
The next step of the procurement process will be to test the technology put forward by the three companies for Australian conditions.
Once the customer access technology is installed the stations will be fully accessible when metro rail services start in 2024.
All Sydney Metro stations will have platform screen doors which keep people and objects like prams away from the tracks, and also allow trains to get in and out of stations much faster.
The new platforms will be level with the updated metro trains, not requiring passengers to step-up into the train.
