The New South Wales Government has awarded Laing O’Rourke an $82.5 million contract for the delivery of a new footbridge at St Marys Station.

The project will aim to improve access to the station for thousands of commuters every day and provide connectivity for the future Sydney Metro – Western Sydney Airport line.

The scope comprises a new footbridge and concourse at the eastern end of St Marys Station including five lifts, four escalators, and three sets of stairs. The bridge will connect the existing Sydney Trains station to the future Sydney Metro – Western Sydney Airport line.

The team will also construct new amenities for Sydney Trains station staff and carry out landscaping to create a new, inviting entrance to the northern side of the station through to Harris Street.

Laing O’Rourke has previously delivered a range of projects for the NSW Government, including upgrades to improve transport connectivity and accessibility at transport hubs across Sydney, and infrastructure works to support delivery of the Sydney Metro network.

Rebecca Hanley, Managing Director – Australia, Laing O’Rourke, said: “Laing O’Rourke has been contributing to improving transport integration and accessibility for the Sydney Trains and Sydney Metro networks.

“Our work to build the new Sydney Metro Central Station demonstrates our experience to build successfully in a busy transport hub, minimising customer disruption and delivering improved future customer experiences.

“We look forward to continuing to work with the New South Wales Government to deliver infrastructure that serves the community.”
