- Excavation for a services facility and crossover structure at Rosehill to allow provision for fresh air ventilation and emergency egress;
- Excavation of connecting tunnels, junction caverns and tunnel portal from the Clyde dive site;
- Earthworks, retaining structures, drainage and utilities corridor for the Clyde Stabling and Maintenance Facility;
- Excavation and civil works for Parramatta and Westmead metro stations;
- A segment manufacturing facility at Eastern Creek constructing over 60,000 segments to line the twin tunnels.
