John Holland CPB Ghella (JHCPBG) has once again been recognised on the international stage as we’ve been shortlisted for Major Project of the Year (over €500M) at the ITA Tunnelling Awards 2020 for the Sydney Metro City & Southwest project.
The project has been selected among the top three of over 50 submissions from around the world.
Sydney Metro is Australia's biggest public transport project. The second stage, Sydney Metro City & Southwest, consists of 15.5km new underground twin tunnels which extend from Chatswood to Marrickville, bored under highly urbanised areas including the central business district. The tunnels were excavated with four double shield TBMs and one mix shield TBM, specific for the 1km harbour crossing underwater stretch.
In 2024, Sydney will have 31 metro railway stations and a 66km standalone metro railway system, revolutionising the way Australia’s biggest city travels.
This year, the ITA Awards 2020 will be held as a virtual conference on December 3rd and 4th. The winners will be announced on December 4th.
