Tunnelling on the $8.3 billion Sydney Metro North West project has passed the 70 percent completion mark, with 22 kilometres of the 30 kilometre tunnelling now finished.
The project includes Australian-first innovations such as a $1.2 million tunnel simulation centre and state-of-the-art 3D goggle technology to train a new generation of tunnellers.
The centre features a life-size replica of a Sydney Metro tunnel which provides a real-life perspective from within a tunnel boring machine.
Minister for Transport and Infrastructure Andrew Constance said the venture was an investment in producing skilled workers for the future.
“Tunnelling is a highly specialised skill and we’re nurturing it for the future – I congratulate the tunnel builders on Sydney Metro Northwest for investing in their workforce for the future”, Mr Constance said.
More than 420 tunnellers have graduated from the training centre at Sydney Metro Northwest’s Showground Station site since the program began.
