Commercial & Infrastructure to advise the Western Sydney Rapid Bus Project

The collaboration is a first step to creating a more accessible and consistent Western Sydney network

Specialist advisor Commercial & Infrastructure (C&I) have announced they will be the program wide cost advisors for The Western Sydney Rapid Bus Project.

The collaboration will see C&I advising Transport for NSW with the development and implementation of a new bus network that will service the new Western Sydney Airport and Bradfield City Centre, scheduled to open in 2026.

“Commercial & Infrastructure are engaged as the program wide cost advisors and are working closely with Transport for NSW and external stakeholders to develop risk assessed cost estimates through project development,” the announcement reads.

“Our team are also working closely with government to explore value management opportunities across the project.

“Our team continue to contribute to planning efforts within Sydney’s Western Region and are thrilled to be part the Western Sydney Rapid Bus Project and supporting the NSW Government’s goal of net zero emissions.”

The Rapid Bus Project recently received $100 million from the federal government as part of a $1.9 billion funding injection that will revolutionise Western Sydney’s transport infrastructure.

The project will see the procurement and operations of a new zero-emission bus fleet, providing quieter, smoother and more comfortable journeys for passengers, and support the NSW government’s goal of net zero emissions by 2050.

New interchanges will also be built around the future Bradfield City Centre and the airport to allow passengers to easily transfer between the airport, bus and Metro services.

Five new services will be added, running every 30 minutes, 5am to 10pm daily.

Additional services are expected to be introduced as demand develops following the airport’s opening.
