In March 2021, the project received its first major planning approval for the project concept between Westmead and the Sydney CBD and major construction work between Westmead and The Bays.

Construction started on Sydney Metro West in 2020.

The Sydney Metro West interactive portal provides area-specific information to help you navigate the project in an easy-to-use and intuitive way. The portal includes information to support your understanding of the planning process and videos from our team of project experts.

Formal project planning for Sydney Metro West started in 2019 and will continue through the early 2020s.

The Sydney Metro West project will support a growing city and deliver world-class metro services to more communities.

Interactive project information.

This new underground railway will connect Greater Parramatta and the Sydney CBD.

Sydney Metro West is a new 24-kilometre metro line with stations confirmed at Westmead, Parramatta, Sydney Olympic Park, North Strathfield, Burwood North, Five Dock, The Bays, Pyrmont and Hunter Street in the Sydney CBD.

Sydney Metro is making project information as easy to access as possible. We want to connect with you so you can find out what you need to know and learn more about the project.

Work started on this city shaping project at The Bays in 2020, with tunnel boring machines (TBMs) set to be in the ground in 2022.

Future planning approvals will consider stations, depots and rail systems between Westmead and the Sydney CBD and integrated station and precinct developments.

Sydney Metro has submitted for assessment to the Department of Planning, Industry and Environment the Environmental Impact Statement for Major civil construction between The Bays and Sydney CBD.

Sydney Metro is now seeking approval for further major civil construction work, including station excavation and tunnelling, between The Bays and Sydney CBD.

This once-in-a-century infrastructure investment will transform Sydney for generations to come, doubling rail capacity between the two CBDs, linking new communities to rail services and supporting employment growth and housing supply. The project is expected to create about 10,000 direct and 70,000 indirect jobs during construction.

This planning document is now on public exhibition until 15 December 2021. Anyone can make a submission, in any language, about the Environmental Impact Statement to the Department of Planning, Industry and Environment. You can find out more by visiting our virtual engagement room.

The community will be able to learn more and have their say at each stage of the planning process.

Sydney Metro West features.

The planning process.

Parramatta metro station will be on the block bounded by George, Macquarie, Church and Smith streets.

Strategically located to the north of the existing Parramatta Station, the new metro station will be within the commercial core of the Parramatta CBD, taking pressure off the existing station and giving customers a second rail option.

Parramatta metro station will support Parramatta CBD as a major employment growth centre, boosting jobs and improving connections across Greater Sydney. It will provide easy, efficient and accessible interchange with buses and Parramatta Light Rail. The new metro station will integrate with the proposed Civic Link, a green, pedestrianised public space from Parramatta Square in the south to Parramatta River in the north.

One station entrance will be on Horwood Place and a second station entrance location is yet to be determined.


Access and entry.

Along with Sydney Olympic Park, The Bays Precinct and Sydney CBD stops on the proposed Sydney Metro West line, the Parramatta Metro Station will be delivered as an Integrated Station Development (ISD). The overstation development will include commercial, retail and residential space.

The Parramatta ISD is expected to be delivered under a D&C contract for the station portion, and as a development agreement for the overstation development.

The proposed Parramatta Metro Station would be on the block bounded by George, Macquarie, Church and Smith streets. Located to the north of the existing heavy rail station, the new metro station would be within the commercial core of the Parramatta CBD.
