Sydney Metro West construction to start in 2020

Published: 22 Oct 2019

The new Sydney Metro West will reduce the travel time between Parramatta and the Sydney CBD by 20 minutes.

Construction on the Sydney Metro West will begin in 2020 at the Bays Precinct to prepare the site for major tunnelling works. This will include site surveys, investigations and road relocation.

The Sydney Metro West will be made up of seven new metro stations at:

  • Westmead
  • Parramatta
  • Sydney Olympic Park
  • North Strathfield
  • Burwood North
  • Five Dock
  • The Bays Precinct
  • Sydney CBD.

The metro station at Sydney Olympic Park will provide a second railway station within walking distance of ANZ Stadium. In Parramatta, the metro station will serve the commercial core of the Parramatta CBD to the north of the existing train station.

Planning and design work is currently underway to determine the location of a new metro station in the Sydney CBD.

Premier Gladys Berejiklian said the Sydney Metro West will change how we get around our city for generations to come.

“It will connect Greater Parramatta and the Sydney CBD with fast, safe and reliable metro rail,” Ms Berejiklian said.
