Sydney metro has locked in the exact locations for the new stations to be built under its Sydney Metro – Western Sydney Airport project.
The 23km driverless railway line will service St Marys, Orchard Hills, Luddenham, the Western Sydney Aerotropolis and two stations at the Western Sydney International (Nancy-Bird Walton) airport.
The tender process has also started to deliver 10km of twin metro railway tunnels, with the call for registrations of interest.
Construction on the project is due to start in late-2020, which is expected to support 14,000 jobs – including 250 apprentices – and inject billions of dollars to the NSW and Australian economies.
The new railway has been designed to link residential areas with jobs hubs, and connect travellers from the new airport with the rest of Sydney’s public transport network.
