Described as “Australia’s biggest public transport project”, the first phase of the Sydney Metro project between Cudgegong Road and Chatswood is already under construction. It is predicted to be opened to traffic in 2019.
The NSW Government has confirmed to build the twin-bore tunnel under 40 meters between Chatswood and Sydenham. It can be completed in 2024.
Sydney Metro City & Southwest will extend the line from Chatswood in Sydney’s Lower North Shore, beneath Sydney Harbour, the CBD and on to Bankstown.
Government also emphasizes to research possibility of widening line from Bankstown to Liverpool. If practicable, the distance from Sydney Metro City to Southwest will shorten 15 minutes.
New metro line will help to improve carrying capacity to ten thousand per hour.
This 11.5 billion AUD project will be constructed between 2017 and 2018, and whole plan will be finished until 2024. Because of constructing new metro stations, urban architectures need to be dismantled and traffic will be impacted.
During metro construction, surrounding buildings’ support methods should be further reinforced to avoid deformation and even collapse. Self drilling rock bolt combines functions of drilling, grouting and anchoring together, bonds itself with surrounding geology tightly and rapidly, and playing role of safe support.
