Sydenham to Bankstown substations
Explore this page
As part of Sydney Metro City & Southwest, a new traction power system is required, including new substations and power supply cables. This includes new substations at Dulwich Hill, Canterbury, Campsie, Lakemba and Punchbowl.
Traction power is an electricity network designed to support train networks. The Sydney Metro network traction power system will be separated and operate independently from the Sydney Trains network.
The substations will be above ground and will be positioned within a secure compound within the rail corridor. The compound will include a parking area for one or two vehicles as well as a loading dock for deliveries.
Dulwich Hill substation will be located on the southern side of the rail corridor, adjacent to Randall Street, Marrickville.
Canterbury substation will be located on the southern side of the rail corridor, north of Hutton Street and west of the Melford Street overbridge.
Campsie substation will be located on the southern side of the rail corridor, north of Lilian Street and east of Carrington Street. Existing commuter car parking in the area will be reconfigured to allow access to the new substation and services building.
Lakemba substation will be located on the southern side of the rail corridor, north of The Boulevarde and west of Taylor Street.
Punchbowl substation will be located on the southern side of the rail corridor, north of South Terrace and east of Scott Street.
