Railway fitout of the new southern railway - Sydney

The new Southern Railway is a significant addition to Sydney's railway infrastructure, and is the first of a number of planned extensions of the Sydney rail network. This project has been designed and built by the private sector. The prime contractor, Transfield Bouygues Joint Venture (TBJV), undertook much of the work with its own resources, but subcontracted the railway system fitout of the completed tunnel and stations. This major subcontract was won by Rail Services Australia in July 1997 and was completed at the end of January 2000 ahead of programme. This paper describes the significant contribution the fitout project has made in applying state-of-the-art systems engineering to the development of a fully integrated railway design that has had to satisfy strict performance criteria in a hard dollar contract. This project has set a new standard for railway design and construction in the Australian rail industry, and will be the benchmark for future major projects.
