In November 2016, the NSW Government announced the Sydney Metro West project – the city’s next underground metro railway.
Sydney Metro West will service the key precincts of Greater Parramatta, Sydney Olympic Park, The Bays Precinct and the Sydney CBD and includes:
- New underground metro stations at Westmead and on the T1 Northern Line east of Sydney Olympic Park
- An underground interchange with an existing suburban station on the T1 Western Line either at Parramatta or Westmead
- Safeguarding the ability to extend south-east to Zetland, Green Square town centre, and towards the west beyond Westmead, including potentially to the new Western Sydney Aerotropolis.
