The consortiums shortlisted for the Stations, Systems, Trains, Operations and Maintenance (SSTOM) are Bradfield Metro, Parklife Metro and WestGo.
The Sydney Metro – Western Sydney Airport project will support 14,000 construction jobs, including 250 apprentices.
The total project cost will be around AUD$11 billion (US$8.2 billion).
The winning team will build six new metro stations and elements of the surrounding precincts, the stabling and maintenance facility, provide rail infrastructure and systems required for the supply, commission and operations of the new trains, and run the line when operational.
The SSTOM package is the third major contract package to be procured for the project.
The contract is expected to be awarded at the end of 2022.
