Managing the impact from Sydney cross city tunnel construction on Railcorp city underground rail network

The Sydney Cross City Tunnel (CCT) consists of two main road tunnels constructed in the vicinity of existing and planned future rail infrastructure. The cost of the project was in the order of $700 million. The interfaces between existing and planned future rail infrastructure and the CCT vary from a 6m clearance at Town Hall station to the provision of bridging slabs for future works associated with the CBD Rail Link. It was recognised that there was a need to identify potential impacts from CCT construction and operations on rail safety and the integrity of existing and future rail assets. RailCorp risks were identified as the CCT moved through its preliminary project development stage. In addition to external risks, internal risks also needed to be addressed.
