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 supply 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
