Sydney’s newest metro rail project underway

The Sydney Metro City & Southwest is the second stage of Sydney’s new rail line. Once built, the line will be able to move more people in the busiest peak hour than the Sydney Harbour Bridge and Sydney Harbour Tunnel combined.

The planning approval process for Sydney’s newest metro rail project has begun with major construction set to begin next year.

You can have your say on the project’s new metro stations at Crows Nest, Victoria Cross, Barangaroo, Martin Place, Pitt Street, Central and Waterloo as part of the first Environmental Impact Statement. Submissions close 27 June 2016.

Sydney Metro City & Southwest will mean:

  • Around 30 million fewer car trips annually in 2036.
  • A metro trip from Chatswood to Central will take just 15 minutes – 11 minutes faster than the existing suburban railway system.
  • New twin railway tunnels will be built, stretching 15.5km from Chatswood to Sydenham and more than 40m below the surface of Sydney Harbour.
  • A specialised tunnel boring machine combining two types of tunnelling technology will be required to deal with the unique ground conditions under Sydney Harbour.
  • More than 6,200 jobs created at the peak of construction in 2017-18.

The Metro extension under the Harbour into the city will take pressure off the congested Wynyard and Town Hall stations. Martin Place will also become a major interchange, where passengers can switch between lines to travel on different parts of the network.
