Sydney Metro West: Stage 3
In late 2019, the NSW State Government announced the construction of the third stage of the Sydney Metro West line, Sydenham to Bankstown, was approved and that the project would commence early 2020. Stage 1 of the project saw the metro being built from Schofields to Chatswood, with the second stage from Chatswood to Sydenham still currently under construction. Compulsory acquisition was necessary for both stage 1 and 2 of the Sydney Metro and new resumptions have been announced for stage 3.
As a stand alone track to the current T3 line west, this upgrade will double rail capacity between Sydenham to Banstown, effectively addressing the ‘Bankstown Bottleneck’ – a slow down in the train network due to the merging of multiple rail lines close to the Sydney CBD at Bankstown station.
In conjunction with additional infrastructure upgrades across the existing track, this project will see an increase in train services from 120 trains per hour, to up to 200 trains per hour by 2024, with trains arriving every 4 minutes in AM and PM peak hours.
For this project, there are 23 residential properties, along with 93 businesses that the NSW Government have identified for compulsory acquisition.
