CPB Contractors: Our team is now starting the big dig at Sydney Metro to deliver a new metro railway crossing deep under Sydney Harbour.

On 22 June 2017, CPB Contractors, with its joint venture partners, was awarded a $2.81 billion contract by the NSW Government to deliver twin 15.5km tunnels and associated civil works on Stage 2 of the Sydney Metro project – Australia’s biggest public transport project.

Design and construction works include:

CPB Contractors is Australasia’s largest tunnelling contractor, working across the roads, rail, water, power and utilities sectors. In Australia, our tunnelling history goes back to 1958 and the Snowy Mountains Hydro Electric Scheme. In South East Asia, we’ve built tunnels in Hong Kong, Singapore, Taiwan and Malaysia.

Working closely with clients and partners, our projects connect communities, play a key role in urban and rural development, help drive economic growth and provide vital, long-term infrastructure.
