18th November 2015, NSW, Sydney: New South Wales is experiencing a renaissance in the development of key state infrastructure, not only witnessing a complete overhaul of the state’s public rail network, but also including the construction of extensive highway links across the state.

Paving the way for largescale road and rail projects within New South Wales, the $11 billion Sydney Metro project has been described as Australia’s largest public transport project, aiming to accommodate for the 8.2 million people that are expected to live in the state by 2020.

In discussion of these major projects shaping the future, the 7th Annual New South Wales Major Projects Conference will be taking place at Doltone House on the 24th & 25th November 2015 to provide a forum for government and industry to review prominent infrastructure and construction projects currently transforming the state.

The Sydney Metro aims to radically transform Australia’s public rail system into a European style subway system, the first within the country, as well as increase the expected number of trains entering Sydney CBD from 120, to nearly 200 trains during peak hour traffic. The project is expected to double the length of the Sydney’s railway network to twice its current coverage on certain lines.

Attracting close to 250 delegates each year, the conference continues to run strong in its seventh and annual rendition. Tom Gellibrand, Deputy Project Director of the Sydney Metro Delivery Office, will be providing a project overview of the Sydney Metro City, NorthWest and SouthWest projects.

A variety of  urban renewal programs have also been taking place in New South Wales, including the $6 billion Barangaroo Redevelopment which aims to redefine the western edge of Sydney Harbour. The waterfront renewal is expected to provide space for over 24,000 permanent jobs, as well as a new train station as part of the Sydney Metro. Craig van der Laan, Chief Executive of the Barangaroo Delivery Authority, will be providing updates on the development.

Featuring more than 25 key speakers from across a wide range of industries and sectors, the 7th Annual New South Wales Major Projects Conference will hold an extensive panel discussion on the topic of NSW Economy – What’s Ahead for the Future, with experts Ric Simes, Director of Deloitte Access Economics, Jeremy Thorpe, Partner of PwC Australia, Justin Fabo, Senior Economist from ANZ and Paul Bloxham, Chief Economist of HSBC Bank Australia.

With plans to commit $68.6 billion over the next four years towards developing critical infrastructure, the New South Wales government has been embarking on the NorthConnex Link and other prominent transport works. Stephen Cornish, Program Director of the NorthConnex Link, will be providing a presentation on the New South Wales and Federal Government’s plan to build, operate and maintain the tolled NorthConnex Link.

Largescale urban renewal projects have also gained traction, with the recent announcement of the $3.6 billion Western Sydney Infrastructure Plan which aims to develop major road and transport linkages. Kevin Doherty, General Manager of the Western Sydney Program Office will be presenting on the plan for a more prosperous Western Sydney.  

Our proud sponsors of the event, ProjectLink, McCullough Robertson, TeamBinder, CSR Hebel, Poles & Underground, A2K Technologies, Redstack, United Fasteners and Eventslinked, will be present at the conference with display stands and representatives to feature new and innovative solutions.

The conference is an opportunity for industry leaders and government officials to share ideas on common challenges and acquire the latest information on major infrastructure projects shaping the development of New South Wales.

The 7th Annual New South Wales Major Projects Conference is being held at Doltone House in Hyde Park on the 24th & 25th of November.
