TSA Advisory was engaged by Transport for New South Wales (TfNSW) as part of an integrated project team to provide project management and transaction management oversight for the installation of Sydney’s CBD and south-east light rail network. TSA’s responsibilities included:

  • Undertaking a Deputy Project Director role within the Light Rail office.
  • Providing assistance in program management and market sounding to enable the definition of a procurement strategy for the delivery of the new network.

Given the projects location, significant liaison with key stakeholders was required for this high-profile project. Delivery requirements from a wide range of parties was reflected in the final procurement strategy.

Following approval of the strategy, TSA coordinated the production of tender documentation issued to the market, managed the tender period, and formed part of the tender assessment committee for the proposals.

The completed light rail provides a new public transport link, extending from Circular Quay, along George Street to Central Station (9 stops), then to Kingsford via Anzac Parade (7 stops), and Randwick via Alison Road (7 stops). The network integrates with Sydney’s wider public transportation network. The light rail services major sporting event facilities at the Sydney Football Stadium, the Sydney Cricket Ground, Randwick Racecourse, the Entertainment Quarter at Moore Park, the University of NSW and the Hospital Health Precinct at Randwick.
