Sydney Metro is now open


Australia’s biggest transport project and most advanced railway, Sydney Metro has officially opened to deliver frequent turn-up-and-go services from Tallawong Station at Rouse Hill to Chatswood Station.

The metro stops at 13 stations along the Metro North West Line, including eight new stations and five upgraded stations, with 4,000 commuter car spaces.

Australia’s first metro railway includes:

  • A fully accessible railway with lifts at all metro stations and level access between platforms and trains
  • Automated platform screen doors that keep people and objects away from the tracks and allow trains to get in and out of stations faster
  • A fleet of 22 driverless trains which have completed 400,000km of testing before going into service
  • Video help points at all stations.

We’re already extending Sydney Metro, with tunnelling well underway from Chatswood, under Sydney Harbour and through the Sydney CBD. The extended line will open in 2024, when Sydney will have 31 metro stations and a new 66km standalone metro railway between Tallawong and Bankstown.

Beyond that, we are extending Sydney Metro to Parramatta and the new Western Sydney Airport in the 2020s.
