The Sydney Metro Northwest Stations project by Mott MacDonald, SMEC and KBR has been announced as Sydney’s top Engineering Excellence Award winner and Sir William Hudson Award finalist.

The state-of-the-art metro line, with its fully automated trains and improved safety features, enhances the capacity of people to commute between different areas of the city, interconnects local communities, and provides development opportunities for new employment hubs. 

The Australian Engineering Excellence Awards (AEEA) recognise Australia’s top engineering projects and the engineering teams behind them. 

Following a rigorous judging process by an independent panel of experts, projects from each of Engineers Australia’s nine divisions are selected to win an AEEA.  One winner from each division is also selected as a finalist for the Sir William Hudson Award – the highest honour for a project awarded by Engineers Australia. 

Engineers Australia Sydney Division Manager, Greg Ewing, congratulated winners on their teamwork, innovation, and technical excellence.

“These Australian Engineering Excellence Award winners showcase the outstanding achievement in engineering and the invaluable contribution engineering makes to the economy, community and the environment,” Mr Ewing said.

“Northwest Sydney Metro has revolutionised the public transport system in Sydney and represents a benchmark for quality of infrastructure. It is a striking addition to Sydney city and is a worthy nominee for the national award.”
