Mascot Substation Project

Topic: Transport

Transport for NSW is seeking feedback on a proposed upgrade to the power supply of the T8 Airport Line as part of the More Trains, More Services program.

What's this about?

The upgrade will include the construction of a new substation at Mascot, which will increase the number of trains operating on the line each hour.

The proposal includes:

  • a new substation at 166 O’Riordan Street, Mascot
  • ancillary works, including new security fencing around the substation, lighting and CCTV
  • upgrade security fencing around the mobile antenna located behind the new substation
  • operation of the proposed substation.

The substation is needed to power more train services on the T8 Airport Line. The location was carefully chosen based on the availability of government-owned land and proximity to the station.

The design aims to minimise visual impact to local residents and the surrounding community.

The substation will include a ground floor basement and first floor containing electrical equipment, loading dock and staff amenities. The building will be set back from neighbouring properties and O’Riordan Street.
