Sydney Metro: West update, March 2018

September 7, 2019

Sydney’s great new railway
is coming to life. From the first half
of next year, Sydney Metro services
will start running in the city’s
booming North West… ..then extending
under the city centre in 2024. And now… ..the metro rail revolution
is headed west. A new, fast, underground
metro railway between our two great cities… ..faster than any other
public transport service between Sydney
and Greater Parramatta. This is Sydney Metro West. We’ve been working with
the community and industry to refine this city-shaping
infrastructure project, which now includes
a new Metro station at Westmead, supporting this growing health,
research and education precinct. A new underground connection between Metro and
suburban rail in the west will get you faster to places
like Sydney Olympic Park, the CBD, and the new Bays
Precinct. And an underground connection
with the Northern Line means more and faster
public transport options. Save up to 30 minutes every day
on train travel between the Central Coast
and Parramatta and about 20 minutes from
Hornsby, opening the door
to more job opportunities and extra time
with family and friends. Taking the pressure off
the congested T1 Western Line, Sydney Metro will double
the rail capacity between Parramatta and Sydney. And we’re safeguarding potential
Metro extensions to the west. One option is the new
Western Sydney Aerotropolis. Now is the time to have your say
as we plan for the future. This is Australia’s biggest
public transport project, for tomorrow’s Sydney.

    I dont mind the metro, but as long as it stays for metro areas, i.e Parramatta, Hurstville etc. Let existing rail do the longer runs still.

    The metros have so less seating capacity. Is it going to be privatised? #shameonnswtransportminister

    I don’t trust those driverless metro locos. Too much can go wrong without the supervision of a driver. And there is nothing wrong with the current train services

    I don't think it is very wise to be planning a second Sydney metro to Parramatta when the first metro line hasn't even been opened. #shameonyousydneymetro

    Breathtakingly stupid a Metro with no Stations, like a pub with no beer. Stations Martin Place, Pyrmont, Bays(Rozelle), Drummoyne, Fivedock, Mortlake (Cabarita, Breakfast Point), Concord West, Homebush Bay, Silverwater(Newington), Rosehill, Parramatta. 10 Stations to Parramatta, time 25 minutes. It's critically important to allow areas en route to either the City or Parramatta to access this Metro. Express services can be catered for more than adequately on the existing Sydney Trains network, it's pointless to leave passengers without a station to save 5 minutes. It's beginning to sound more like Malcolm's NBN than a metro. Junk the plan to build the "beaches motorway" a certain method to attract all those car driving westies, extend the Metro West to Avalon and Terry Hills. Stations Martin Place, North Sydney, Neutral Bay, Mosman, Balgowlah Heights, Fairlight, Manly Vale, Brookvale, Dee Why, Cromer, Collaroy, Narrabeen, Elanora, Mona Vale, Newport, Avalon. 40 minutes to Martin Place from Avalon, who would bother driving with a 3-minute service easily paid for with the cancellation of the Motorway. Build using the Alstom Axonis Metro using viaduct where possible.
