About Sydney Metro Trains Facility South
Sydney Metro operations are controlled and monitored from the Sydney Metro Trains Facility (SMTF) in Rouse Hill, which was built as part of Sydney Metro Northwest. Train maintenance and stabling also occurs at this location. The SMTF is being expanded as part of Sydney Metro City & Southwest, to accommodate the growing fleet of driverless trains.
Stabling for Sydney Metro City & Southwest will also occur at the Sydney Metro Trains Facility South (SMTFS), a smaller supplementary facility at Marrickville that will provide for overnight stabling of Sydney Metro trains and light maintenance activities to minimise the requirement to send trains to the Sydney Metro Trains Facility at Rouse Hill.
Construction of the SMTFS will begin in 2021.
Marrickville, bounded by the water detention basin (Sydenham Pit), Sydney Steel Road, Edinburgh Road and the rail corridor.
