Sydney Metro has invited expressions of interest (EoIs) to appoint an operator for its Western Sydney Airport project. The EoIs are being invited under the Stations, Systems, Trains, Operations and Maintenance (SSTOM) package, to be delivered as an integrated package within a public-private partnership (PPP) framework (the SSTOM package). The scope of work also includes construction of six stations, supply of rolling stock, development and operation of the stabling and maintenance facility at Orchard Hills, installation of tracks, signalling, mechanical, and electrical systems, as well as provision of operations and maintenance (O&M) services. The last date for the submission of EoIs is June 18, 2021. The contract is expected to be awarded by end-2022.


The Western Sydney Airport Line will span 23 km and cover six stations. The metro line will link the Western Sydney International (Nancy-Bird Walton) Airport, the Western Sydney Aerotropolis, and the T1 Western Line. The project involves an investment of AUD11 billion. Passenger services are expected to commence in 2026.
