Thousands of new commuter car parking spaces have been completed along the Northwest Metro rail line, which will open to customers from Rouse Hill to Chatswood within months.
Premier Gladys Berejiklian said it is another major milestone on the $8.3 billion Metro project, which has only been made possible because of the NSW Liberals & Nationals Government’s strong economic management.
“Sydney Metro will provide turn-up-and-go train services up to every two minutes and revolutionise the way we get around our great city,” Ms Berejiklian said.
“As part of the major investment we are providing 4000 new commuter car spaces to make it as easy as possible for commuters using the Metro.
“This is the first time 4000 new commuter spaces have been opened at once in Sydney and it is 1000 more than we originally proposed.”
The capacity of the Sydney Metro Northwest car parks is:
- Tallawong -1000 spaces;
- Bella Vista – 800;
- Hills Showground – 600;
- Cherrybrook – 400;
- Kellyville – 1360
Minister for Transport and Infrastructure Andrew Constance said all of the new commuter car parks will open at the same time as the Metro Northwest rail line.
“The Metro Northwest rail line is being delivered by the NSW Government on time and more than $500 million under budget,” Mr Constance said.
“This project shows the NSW Liberals & Nationals Government delivers on its promises.
“You can’t trust Labor – when they were last in office they promised 12 rail lines and did not complete one in full.”
There are more than 340 spaces for bikes, 16 new bus stops, 52 taxi spaces and provisions for more than 100 kiss and ride spaces across the Sydney Metro Northwest line
Sydney Metro is being extended from the north west into the CBD, with services to start in 2024 – when Sydney will have 31 metro station and a new 66km standalone metro railway.
