Sydney’s new generation of fast, safe and reliable metro trains will first operate on Sydney Metro Northwest. Sydney Metro Northwest, formerly the North West Rail Link, is the first stage of Sydney Metro.

Sydney Metro is Australia’s largest public transport infrastructure project. It will transform Sydney and help deliver more trains and faster services. Sydney Metro is a new stand alone railway network that is being built to meet the challenges of a growing population and the needs of customers in the future as part of Sydney’s Rail Future, the NSW Government’s plan to modernise Sydney’s trains.

Sydney Metro City & Southwest is the second stage of Sydney Metro.  It will extend metro rail from the end of Sydney Metro Northwest at Chatswood and then under Sydney Harbour, through new underground stations in the CBD and west to Bankstown.

This means the railway network across greater Sydney will have room for an extra 100,000 train customers an hour in the peak. The fully automated, state-of-the-art Sydney Metro network will have the capacity to operate 30 trains an hour through the CBD in each direction and a train every two minutes each way, with trains required to run on-time 98 per cent of the time. Metro trains will provide Sydney customers with more choice alongside suburban double deck trains and intercity trains.

The NSW Government has awarded $1.5 billion in contracts to build the tunnel and skytrain sections of Sydney Metro Northwest. All four tunnel boring machines are in the ground and digging; the first launched four months ahead of schedule in September 2014.

Sydney Metro Northwest tunnels are specifically designed for a modern, fully-automated metro system. The new system is being designed for a new breed of high-metro trains, unlike anything else ever seen in Sydney before.
