Veris awarded Sydney Metro Contract

Veris Australia has been awarded a contract of approximately $1 million to provide Subsurface and Utility Investigations services as part of the Sydney Metro West, Central Tunnelling Package.

The services, to be provided to Acciona Construction Australia Pty Ltd and Ferrovial Construction (Australia) Pty Ltd Joint Venture for the Central Tunnelling Package have an expected duration of three months, with works set to commence immediately.
