Project Description
The Sydney Metro West proposal aims to provide a direct connection between the CBDs of Parramatta and Sydney, linking communities not previously serviced by rail as well as supporting growth between the two major CBDs. An extra 420,000 people are expected to move into the corridor between Greater Parramatta and central Sydney over the next 20 years. The new railway is expected to be built largely underground. The final number of potential stations will be identified following community and industry consultation. Four key precincts to be considered for the project include: • Parramatta, where the number of jobs is expected to double over the next 20 years to 100,000. • Sydney Olympic Park, where 34,000 jobs and more than 23,000 residents will be located by 2030. • The Bays Precinct, proposed as Sydney’s new innovation hub where 95 hectares of land is being regenerated. • The Sydney CBD, allowing easy access to the existing public transport network and Stages 1 and 2 of Sydney Metro, which is currently under construction. Opportunities to extend this project to the west (including to Western Sydney Airport) are also being considered as part of the Joint Commonwealth/State Western Sydney Rail Needs Study. Sydney Metro West is expected to be operational in the second half of the 2020s. INSW was consulted for the information included for this project. A copy of the full pipeline document is available at www.insw.com
