About the construction site
The Memorial Avenue site is one of two starting points for the construction of the skytrain.
When completed, people and vehicles will be able to freely move around underneath the skytrain, keeping the area connected.
Once the skytrain is built, work will start on the elevated railway stations at Kellyville and Rouse Hill - two of the eight new metro stations.
Main site features
Construction work within the site will include:
- Cutting and embankment construction
- Viaduct construction
- Construction of a temporary car park.
The first section of the Sydney Metro Northwest skytrain to be built over a major road has been successfully completed.
In a precision operation carried out over five nights, 12 segments of the skytrain were lifted over Memorial Avenue at Kellyville. Each of the segments weighs about 84 tonnes and were lifted 11 metres into the air by the massive horizontal crane sitting above Memorial Avenue.
The segments were then attached and tensioned to form the deck of the skytrain, an elevated railway which will run 4km from Bella Vista to Rouse Hill.
The skytrain span over Memorial Avenue has now been completed with minimal disruption to the road network. This construction method keeps traffic moving beneath the seven major roads and the T-way which the skytrain crosses, minimising impacts on drivers.
Access to the Memorial Avenue construction site is from:
- Balmoral Road (left in, right out)
- Memorial Avenue (all movements).
