Parramatta to Epping Rail Link – Options Study

The Parramatta to Epping Rail Link (PERL) project will form the final section of the Chatswood to Parramatta loop. The project secured federal and state government funding in 2011 and will directly link Parramatta with Sydney’s North West suburbs, cut travel time between Chatswood and Parramatta.

Our involvement

As part of a study to determine the preferred construction option, Aquenta was engaged to provide cost planning services to assist in the analysis of 5 different options under consideration. Our services included pricing tunnels (cut & cover and road header), above and below ground stations, new bridges, rail systems and civils, together with the maintenance costs associated with each.


Cost planning.

The outcome

A preferred option for completion of this section of the rail network was identified and the plan has been submitted to the NSW Government for consideration.
