Construction sites for Sydney Metro projects should be tagged in line with the overall OpenStreetMap standard, but there are some additional tags that you should add to help detail them as much as possible.
Construction sites should bear a name with both its location, and an accurate descriptor of its planned purpose. For example, stations can use the descriptor "Metro Station", service facilities as "Metro Services Facilities", and so on.
Construction sites for the purpose of Sydney Metro but are without any identifiable descriptor, can instead use a generic name=Sydney Metro Construction Site.
Please note that for the operator tag, you should not use Metro Trains Sydney. It's currently uncertain whether this company will also manage any potential future lines, and should only be added if confirmed.
