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 Sydney Metro Greater West operational in 2026 when Western Sydney International airport is planned to open.

The Western Sydney City Deal

Supporting the airport and Aerotropolis is a key part of the Western Sydney City Deal, a 20-year agreement signed in March 2018 by the NSW Government, Australian Government and eight Western Sydney councils.

Delivering Sydney Metro Greater West, connecting the Aerotropolis and Western Sydney International with the rest of Sydney’s rail system at St Marys is a key City Deal commitment.
