Rodd Staples leads the team which is delivering Sydney Metro – Australia’s biggest public transport project, with 31 stations and 66km of new metro rail.
Stage 1 of Sydney Metro is the $8.3 billion Sydney Metro Northwest from Rouse Hill to Chatswood which opens in 2019. Stage 2, Sydney Metro City & Southwest, extends the network beyond under Sydney Harbour and through the CBD to Sydney’s south west. It is expected to open in 2024 and will deliver new CBD stations and relieve congestion across the broader rail network.
An engineer growing up in Sydney’s south, Rodd has worked in the fields of transport and infrastructure planning for nearly two decades – across Australia and in both the public and private sectors.
His qualifications in engineering and finance provide the strong foundations required to deliver a program of works on this scale.
“The opportunity to work on a city-transforming project with such a dedicated team is a privilege and one that I am very proud of,” Rodd says.
“We are delivering a new metro system with the customer as its focus which will help transform public transport in Sydney.”
