Sydney Metro West will provide a direct connection between Parramatta and Sydney

A new underground metro railway for Western Sydney will be the state’s next major public transport project, securing the long-term future of the region and of Australia’s global city.

The NSW Government will work with the community and industry to deliver the largely underground Sydney Metro West by the second half of the 2020s. The project includes new railway stations at:

The government will determine other stations along the route through consultation with industry and the community.

Premier Mike Baird said a metro line in Western Sydney would double rail capacity between Parramatta and the Sydney CBD.

The new railway complements the existing Sydney Trains T1 Western Line, which is quickly reaching capacity. Sydney Metro West will be able to move about 40,000 people an hour in each direction.

Minister for Transport and Infrastructure Andrew Constance said the government was also investigating innovative ways to reduce travel times.

“Customers won’t need a timetable on this 21st century turn-up-and-go metro system," Mr Constance said.

“It will also mean faster and more frequent services will be able to be delivered on the Sydney Trains network from other major centres like Penrith and Blacktown.”

Sydney Metro West will integrate with long-term transport planning for Western Sydney including Parramatta Light Rail, the rail needs currently being investigated for the future Western Sydney Airport and the Western Sydney Rail Upgrade Program targeting capacity on the T1 Western Line.
