Metro Rail Summit 2018

Exploring Innovative ways to Deliver Complex Underground Rail Construction to Create Future Transport Hubs

Underground metro stations are the future of Australia’s transport network. These projects offer a space saving alternative to over ground developments and will increase the functionality and capacity of existing networks. Already, 94% of tracks have been laid for Sydney Metro Norwest and Metro rail services are set to begin in the first half of 2019.

As excitement builds for the completion of metro rail projects around Australia, developers continue to face challenges that result in time and cost escalations. With this in mind IQPC is proud to present the Metro Rail Summit 2018.

Featuring International and Australian case studies, leading experts in the field will discuss key challenges of underground rail construction such as:

  • Tunnelling through mixed geological conditions and existing underground utilities
  • Achieving overground and underground station integration
  • Ensuring the project is delivered on time and on budget through effective stakeholder engagement
  • Risk analysis for safe tunnelling operations
