The successful team will construct and design the 13.1m-ID, 8km long tunnel to station audit connections, plus emergency and ventilation egress facilities, as well as support-of-excavation substructures for three underground stations.

The other three contract packages which is going to be delivered through design-build contain the contract for the build-out of three underground stations with above-ground entrances and ticketing; the systems contract; and the above-ground station and rail yard.

Five miles of the alignment will be underground.
