RATP Dev will be the exclusive Operations & Maintenance contractor for the driverless Sydney Metro – Western Sydney Airport (WSA) project, as part of the Parklife Metro consortium to deliver a world-class, metro system and provide safe, comfortable, and reliable passenger transport for Sydney’s visitors and residents.
Sydney Metro – Western Sydney Airport line will help deliver 23km of world-class driverless metro system for Western Sydney. The city-shaping project will provide major economic stimulus and boost regional development.
The line will become the transport spine for Western Sydney by connecting the Western Sydney International Airport and the Western Sydney Aerotropolis to the rest of the Greater Sydney. Thanks to seamless integration with the broader Sydney rail network, the line will support new communities, generate thousands of jobs during delivery and beyond, and partner with local businesses to boost the local economy.
Sydney Metro and the consortium have reached contract close on the Stations, Systems, Trains, Operations and Maintenance (SSTOM) PPP package, which comprises the operation and maintenance of the WSA line for 15 years.
The consortium includes :
RATP Dev will contribute its expertise in powerful mass-transit, with 5.6 million daily passenger journeys by metro, and its 30-year experience in agile fully driverless metros, with 10 systems (GoA4) operated globally.
The operation & maintenance of the line alone is expected to create more than 300 jobs.
The project is expected to be completed and operational when Western Sydney International opens for passenger services.
