Supporting services and Infrastructure
A stabling and maintenance facility is proposed to be located in the Clyde and Rosehill industrial estate bounded by James Ruse Drive, Western Motorway (the M4), Unwin Street and Shirley Street.
The site is situated opposite Rosehill Gardens racecourse and includes the Valvoline Speedway site.
The proposed Clyde facility could provide a location to house a high-tech Operations Control Centre to constantly monitor all aspects of the Sydney Metro West line, controlling the trains, tunnels and platforms to deliver safe and reliable journeys.
Inside the facility, a traction substation would provide power to the metro line and a water treatment plant would treat and recycle all wastewater from the tunnels, stations and underground facilities. The facility would also house offices, parking and storage.
Services facilities are proposed to be built at Silverwater and within the Clyde stabling and maintenance facility to provide fresh air ventilation into the tunnels and emergency exists out of them.
Further planning is underway to determine the location of another service facility between Five Dock and The Bays Precinct.
