Sydney Metro is Australia’s biggest public transport project.
From the north west, metro rail is being extended under Sydney Harbour, through new underground city stations and beyond to the south west.
In 2024, Sydney will have 31 metro railway stations and a 66lm standalone metro railway system, revolutionising the way Australia’s biggest city travels.
New stations are being delivered at Crows Nest, Victoria Cross, Barangaroo, Martin Place, Pitt Street and Waterloo along with new underground platforms at Central Station.
Stations along the existing Bankstown Line will be upgraded. There will be safety screen doors on platforms and all stations will be fully accessible.
Together, Sydney Metro City & Southwest and the Western Sydney Rail Upgrade Program (a major program including new services and rail upgrades for the T1 Western Line) will deliver benefits for train customers across Sydney, especially the west, north west and south west, including:
- Cutting crowding on the T1 Western Line and on suburban trains from the south west
- Less platform crowding at Wynyard and at other key stations such as Town Hall and North Sydney
- Up to 10 minutes faster from Bankstown to the city
- Around 20 minutes faster trip, Martin Place to Macquarie Park
- Space for an extra 100,000 passengers in the busiest hour of the peak
