Provide front end engineering design (FEED), programming and constructability support

Description Of Project

The NSW Roads and Traffic Authority (RTA) of New South Wales identified the need for an efficient traffic solution for transport between the western suburbs of Sydney, the Sydney CBD, Sydney Airport, the South Sydney Growth Centre, and Port Botany. This was considered of vital importance to the economy and function of the road network in Sydney. As a result, the RTA progressed with investigations into an underground solution as an extension to the existing M4 Motorway in Sydney.

SYSTRA Bamser Involvement

SYSTRA Bamser were engaged by the RTA to provide front end engineering design (FEED), programming and constructability support to their existing Motorway Projects division in assessing tunnel delivery options for the proposed underground eastern extension to the M4.

As part of the engagement, Bamser were commissioned to complete a staged study to aid the development of tunnel concepts for the project. Ultimately the refined concept design formed the basis for a formal project procurement process.
