Sydney Metro - Revolutionizing the Way Sydney Travels

Tom Gellibrand
Deputy Program Director for Metro Product and Integration
Transport for New South Wales, Sydney

Sydney Metro is Australia’s biggest public transport project. Comprising of Stage 1: Sydney Metro Northwest and Stage 2: Sydney Metro City and Southwest, this new standalone railway will deliver 31 metro stations and more than 66 kilometers of new metro rail, revolutionizing the way Australia’s biggest city travels. Earlier in 2017, the NSW government announced Sydney Metro has commenced investigating Sydney Metro West, which will deliver a direct connection between the CBDs of Parramatta and Sydney, linking communities along the way that have not been previously serviced by rail and unlocking housing supply and employment growth between the two major CBDs.

Sydney Metro, together with the NSW government, is looking to unleash the potential of new metro stations through a focus on: vibrant new communities around metro stations; integrated station development opportunities at new stations in existing commercial centers; infill development adjacent to metro stations within existing centers; and development opportunities within existing centers. In addition to creating new jobs and homes for Sydney’s growing population, these developments will create attractive, green and livable centers that will connect people to their employment and essential services.
