Project overview

About Sydney Metro Greater West

Sydney Metro Greater West is the new railway line which will service Greater Western Sydney and the new Western Sydney International (Nancy-Bird Walton) Airport.

The new railway will become the transport spine for the Western Parkland City’s growth for generations to come, connecting communities and travellers with the rest of Sydney’s public transport system with a fast, safe and easy metro service.

The Sydney Metro Greater West project will have:

  • Stations at Western Sydney Airport and the Western Sydney Aerotropolis;
  • A station at St Marys, interchanging with the existing station and connecting customers with the rest of Sydney’s rail system;
  • Fully-automated driverless trains like the rest of the Sydney Metro system with fast, frequent services – customers won’t need a timetable, they’ll just turn up and go.

The Australian and NSW governments have a shared objective of having the metro rail operational in 2026 when the Western Sydney Airport is scheduled to open.
