Redefining passenger travel
The Sydney Metro Northwest– Skytrain forms part of the biggest public transport infrastructure project in Australia since the Sydney Harbour Bridge was built almost 100 years ago, featuring the first completely automated high-speed train system on the continent.
The project addresses future travel requirements in Sydney’s growing North West region which currently has the highest car ownership levels per household in NSW. Sydney Metro Northwest will redefine future passenger travel and road congestion with trains running every four minutes at peak (15 trains an hour) via eight new railway stations, supported by 4,000 commuter car parking spaces
