Sydney Metro Northwest is a current project by the Government of New South Wales for a rapid transit link to the north-western suburbs of Sydney, Australia. It is being managed by Transport for New South Wales and is proposed to connect Rouse Hill to Chatswood via Castle Hill and Epping.
The project, at 36km in length, is also the first stage of the new Sydney Metro and will be the first fully-automated railway network and the biggest public transport infrastructure project in Australia. The project includes eight new railway stations, five existing railway stations converted to metro standard and 4,000 new commuter car parking spaces. Services will start in the first half of 2019 with a train every four minutes in the peak, or 15 an hour.
With 98 per cent on-time running, Sydney Metro Northwest will be Australia’s first ’turn up and go’ metro network and will deliver a level of customer service and safety never before seen in Australian public transport.
Self-drilling hollow bar system is an ideal anchor system for underground construction and environmental solution for metro tunneling projects. It’s usually used for pre-support in the construction. Self-drilling hollow bar system is safe, reliable and efficient owing to its unique feature of integrating drilling, grouting and anchoring in one operation.
