Parramatta metro station

Main station features

Strategically located to the north of the existing Parramatta Station, the new metro station will be within the commercial core of the Parramatta CBD, taking pressure off the existing station and giving customers a second rail option.

Parramatta metro station will support Parramatta CBD as a major employment growth centre, boosting jobs and improving connections across Greater Sydney. It will provide easy, efficient and accessible interchange with buses and Parramatta Light Rail. The new metro station will integrate with the proposed Civic Link, a green, pedestrianised public space from Parramatta Square in the south to Parramatta River in the north.


Parramatta metro station will be on the block bounded by George, Macquarie, Church and Smith streets.

Access and entry

One station entrance will be on Horwood Place and a second station entrance location is yet to be determined.

Planning  update

The Environmental Impact Statement for over and adjacent station development at Parramatta metro station is currently under assessment.  


Station excavation and tunnelling

In February 2022, Sydney Metro awarded Gamuda Australia and Laing O’Rourke Consortium (GLC) the contract to deliver nine kilometres of twin metro rail tunnels between Westmead and Sydney Olympic Park.

At Parramatta these works include:

  • site establishment and demolition – installing hoarding, protecting and/or relocating utilities, conducting investigations, installing staff facilities and services to the construction site, installing piles and initial excavation
  • excavating the station box – to a depth of 28 metres (approximately 10 storeys)
  • archaeological investigations
  • upgrading traffic safety in local streets
  • removing excavated material – via trucks through George Street and O’Connell Street to Great Western Highway.
