Sydney Metro Northwest SVC
The Sydney Metro Northwest project involved the construction of a new metropolitan train line north-west of Sydney, connecting Chatswood station with Cudgegong Road, Rouse Hill.
This is the biggest public transport infrastructure project in Australia, and the biggest in Sydney since Harbour Bridge was built almost 100 years ago.
The works in the section between Bella Vista station and Cudgegong Road, involved the design and construction of the "skytrain" bridge and other civil works that made up one of the main sections of the line.
The project involved building 8 new stations and 4,000 parking spaces.
It is the first completely automated high-speed train system on the continent.
For the Sydney Metro Northwest project, the Infrastructure Sustainability Council of Australia (ISCA) awarded Salini Impregilo the best rating, placing the project among the World-Class Best Practice in Sustainability. ISCA, a non-profit public and private body, operates the country’s only comprehensive rating system to evaluate the sustainability of infrastructure projects in every regard, whether it be environmental, social, economic or governance.
In particular, the Group received two awards, both for design – Leading IS Design rating – in 2015, and for building – Leading As Built IS rating – in 2017.
