The Sydney Metro is the biggest public transport project in Australia to date. The metro will add 66km of standalone metro railway to Sydney’s transport network, making room for more than 100,000 extra customers every hour. The project is currently broken into 2 stages, the Metro Northwest and the Metro City and Southwest, with the Metro Northwest stage expected to be completed by mid 2019. The second stage, the Metro Southwest, has only just commenced excavation in late 2017 with planned completion in 2024. The combined Metro projects are expected to cost around $20 billion dollars. Eastern Plant Hire is currently in contract with the operators of the Metro City and Southwest project. We are predominantly undertaking work relating to the transport of material to and from the various construction sites.
