Sydney Metro West Railway Project

The Sydney Metro West project is a new underground metro railway that will connect the Parramatta and Sydney CBDs. The NSW Government has committed an initial $3 billion to the project. The new metro railway will:

  • Double rail capacity between these two areas
  • Link new communities to rail services 
  • Unlock housing supply and employment growth between the two CBDs
  • Likely have stations at Parramatta, Westmead, Sydney Olympic Park, North Strathfield, North Burwood, Five Dock, Bays Precinct and the Sydney CBD.

This route was selected because more travel services are needed between Parramatta and the Sydney CBD. An extra 420,000 people are expected to move into the corridor between Greater Parramatta and central Sydney over the next 20 years. More than 300,000 new jobs are expected to be created by 2036 in this corridor which includes the Parramatta CBD, Sydney Olympic Park and the Bays Precinct.

A Glimpse Of Parramatta's Future Metro West Station

See what the future Civic Link and Parramatta Metro Station will look like

Take a virtual tour of the future Civic Link and Parramatta Metro Station. This game-changing local infrastructure will unlock the region’s potential and increase connectivity and opportunity for growth between Parramatta and Sydney city.

Standing Room Only

The growth of the region means the existing T1 Western Line will be severely overcrowded by the early 2030s. The NSW Government will also safeguard the ability to extend Sydney Metro towards the west beyond Westmead and possibly to the new Western Sydney Aerotropolis.
