The latest station designs have been unveiled for Rouse Hill and Castle Hill on Sydney Metro Northwest. Rouse Hill is one of two elevated Sydney Metro Northwest stations, sitting more than 12 metres above ground as part of the 4 kilometre skytrain.
The station designs focus on customer needs with features such as easy access using lifts and escalators, weather protection and allowing the maximum amount of natural light. All Sydney Metro stations also feature Australian-first state-of-the-art platform screen doors, which keep objects like prams away from the edge and allow trains to get in and out of stations much faster.
Minister for Transport and Infrastructure Andrew Constance said Rouse Hill Station will become a new hub for commuters.
“Sydney Metro will change the way of life forever in the Hills region, for the first time delivering a reliable public transport service to an area that will grow to twice the size of Canberra in coming decades,” Mr Constance said.
“These stations are being designed to make it easier for customers to get where they need to go – to work, shopping, school, uni or sport.”
There will also be bus interchanges at these stations as well as bicycle storage, taxi spaces and kiss-and-ride areas.
