Sydney Metro North West – An SBS Documentary
CMS Surveyors were proud to have played a part in the massive project that is Sydney Metro Northwest; currently being featured on TV in SBS’s four-part series Sydney’s Super Tunnel.
Our involvement started way back in mid-2016 when our friends at S&L Steel engaged us to assist with checking two steel bridge pylons they were constructing in their warehouse at Glendenning. These two huge steel structures would eventually become the main supports for Australia’s first cable-stayed curved rail bridge and are now a landmark feature over Windsor Road at Rouse Hill.
CMS Surveyors combined laser-scanning technology with in-house developed software and virtual surveying techniques to create as-built drawings; verifying that the construction was in tolerance with the design.
In 2017, CMS Surveyors won the Extra Dimension category at the Excellence in Surveying and Spatial Information Awards for our involvement in the project.
The trailer for the series can be watched on Youtube here or you can watch all four parts in full on SBS OnDemand here until November 8th. Keep an eye out for Chris’s appearance 17 minutes into the fourth episode!
