Bids submitted for North West Rail OTS PPP contract

Transport for New South Wales has received two proposals for the Operations, Trains and Systems (OTS) Package of the North West Rail link project, which is being procured via a PPP contract.

The two proposals will be assessed before the NSW Government awards the multi-billion dollar contract in the second half of next year.

The two consortia are the following:

The contract includes:

  • building the eight new railway stations,
  • delivering the commuter car parks for 4,000 cars,
  • supplying the new generation rapid transit single deck trains,
  • building and operating the stabling and maintenance facility at Tallawong Road,
  • installing tracks, signalling, mechanical and electrical systems,
  • converting the Epping to Chatswood Rail Link for the new rapid transit system,
  • operating the North West Rail Link - including all maintenance work.

Gladys Berejiklian, NSW's transport minister, said:

The cream of the crop from across Australia and around the world have put a massive amount of work into these proposals - to ensure we deliver the best project for our customers.
The total project cost is estimated at A$8.3 billion (US$7.5 billion).

In July, the government of New South Wales awarded a $1.15 billion contract for the tunnels design-build contract of the North West Rail Link to a consortium that includes Thiess (Leighton group), John Holland (Leighton group) and Spanish firm Dragados.
