SAGE awarded the Tunnel Ventilation and Building Management Control Systems contract for Metro Tunnel Project

Published: September 11, 2019 - Updated: September 11, 2019

SAGE Automation is delighted to be selected as the tunnel and building management control system designer and integrator for the Metro Tunnel Project in Melbourne. 


The largest public transport infrastructure project ever undertaken in Victoria, the Metro Tunnel Project will deliver twin nine‐kilometre tunnels and five new underground stations through the centre of Melbourne.


The project’s benefits will be far-reaching – by taking three of the busiest train lines (Cranbourne/Pakenham and Sunbury lines) through a new tunnel under the city, it will free up space in the City Loop to run more trains in and out of the suburbs.

SAGE Automation will implement the delivery of automated control systems for the tunnel

ventilation and building management system for the major railway infrastructure project, working

with Tunnels and Stations contractor CYP Design & Construction Joint Venture (CYP D&C), a consortium comprising Lendlease Engineering, John Holland and Bouygues Construction.


“The SAGE team is proud to bring our knowledge and experience with railway projects to the Metro

Tunnel Project. This has already created additional employment and opportunities for SAGE,” said Paul

Markwick, General Manager for SAGE Automation Victoria.


“We’re looking forward to enabling delivery of one of the biggest transport infrastructure projects in

Australia,” he said.


Five full‐time engineers from SAGE will be co‐located in CYP D&C’s buildings to deliver the works. The

project will utilise local industry suppliers and contractors to deliver the complex rail project.


SAGE has extensive experience delivering Intelligent Transport System components for major

projects, such as the Monash Freeway. Read how we enabled sophisticated controls for better traffic

flow management.
