Transdev and Alstom selected for building the new innovative tramway in Sydney CBD

Mathilde Mortreuil - 19/11/14

The French groups Transdev and Alstom have been selected by the NSW Transport Minister, Gladys BEREJIKLIAN, on October the 23rd, to be part of the “Connecting Sydney” consortium. This group aims to build and manage a new tramway line for Sydney’s central business district. The design presented by the companies was judged to be the most innovative; it will allow the transport of 18,000 passengers per hour in each direction, instead of the 9,000 originally intended, and will replace the circulation of approximately 200 buses. The Public-Private Partnership contract is estimated to cost AU$ 1.6 billion and construction of the line is expected to commence in 2019-2020.

The department of Infrastructure, Transport and Industry (ITI) facilitates business between French-based companies and Australian companies/agents/distributors. The ITI department also covers the sectors of environment, energy, mines and oil & gas. Most of our international companies such as Alstom, Areva, EADS, GDF, Suez, Technip, Thales, Total, Turbomeca, Veolia operate successfully in Australia thanks to partnerships and alliances with local companies.  Nevertheless, French SMEs could also bring their expertise and savoir faire when they team up with local players able to master the local context. In 2013, we are going to bring French delegations to AOG tradeshow (Oil & Gas). Feel free to contact us should your company be interested in connecting with potential French exporters.
