Sydney Metro Update

Sydney Metro

Sydney Metro City & Southwest is now one step closer with commuters getting their first look at our new congestion-busting CBD railway stations as the planning approvals process starts for Stage 2 of Sydney Metro, Australia’s biggest public transport project. A metro trip from Chatswood to Central will take 15 minutes, about 10 minutes faster than the existing suburban railway system. This Environmental Impact Statement is looking specifically at the Chatswood to Sydenham section of Sydney Metro, which includes a new harbour crossing and new metro stations at Crows Nest, Victoria Cross in North Sydney, Barangaroo, Martin Place, Pitt Street, Central and Waterloo. The public will have until June 27 2016 to comment on various environmental impacts of the project, such as noise and vibration, sustainability and energy consumption. The planning approvals process for the upgrade of the existing railway line to Bankstown will start later this year.

This talk will provide an update on the Sydney Metro City & Southwest, including key drivers for the planning and design of this city-shaping infrastructure project, and the transport benefits delivered by a metro network.
