VMT is involved in Australian’s largest railway tunnel project – the North West Rail Link

The A$8.3 billion North West Rail Link is the most extensive public transport infrastructure project in New South Wales currently and is used to connect more remote parts of the city of Sydney to the transport network and to develop new housing and job opportunities.

Overall, the existing railway line is to be extended by 23 km and eight new stations from Epping to Cudgegong Road at Rouse Hill. This includes the construction of a new railway tunnel between Epping to Bella Vista. Until now, this tunnel is with a length of 15 km, the longest tunnel in Australia.



To realize this project, a combination of Roadheaders and TBMs will perform the drilling. VMT supports the segment production with our segment documentation system SDS.

The North West Rail Link is expected to open to customers by the end of 2019.
