Transport for NSW (TNSW) also known as Department of Transport, NSW Government, plans to undertake the construction of metro rail line from Parramatta to Sydney CBD in New South Wales, Australia.
The project involves the construction of 35km underground metro rail line with a capacity of 40,000 passengers an hour in each direction. It includes the construction of stations, parking and related facilities, installation of signal lights, power-related facilities, the laying of tracks and transmission lines.
The stations are expected in Parramatta, Sydney Olympic Park, The Bays Precinct and Sydney CBD; whereas other potential stations along the route will be determined through consultation with industry and the community.
In July 2016, the NSW Government has planned to build such a line. On October 28, 2016, TNSW has published a discussion paper which outlines a number of options, split into Options A-E Western Sydney (mostly connecting Parramatta to the Sydney CBD) and Options 1-6 Western Sydney Airport (connecting the new Western Sydney Airport to the rail network).
Out of these option A, a new western metro-style service would appear to be the proposal being put forward by the consortium and therefore be the front runner. The option A includes the construction of metro line which requires a tunnel to be built between Sydney and Parramatta / Westmead with stations located every few kilometers. It could operate as a stand-alone, Metro-style, all stops service using high capacity single deck trains with the potential to transport 40,000 extra passengers per hour.
TNSW is seeking feedback on the discussion paper; however, the details about the cost, the exact route or how many stations would be built would be subject to talks with industry and the wider community, and a business case for the project.
In March 2017, TNSW secured preliminary approvals from Department Of Transport, New South Wales.
Planning activities are underway.
