A new underground pedestrian link will be built from the future Norwest Railway Station to the Norwest retail and business precinct.
Following community consultation late last year, the link has been approved and work will soon start as part of the $8.3 billion Sydney Metro Northwest project.
This underground link will take pedestrians below Norwest Boulevard, providing a faster and easier link from the new railway station to established retail and commercial areas including the Norwest Marketown Shopping Centre. Norwest is one of the fastest growing employment centres in Sydney.
About 15,000 people travel to Norwest for work every day at major Australian and international companies – and this is expected to increase to 30,000 by 2031.
