Main North and North Shore corridor works
Following the opening of Sydney Metro Northwest between Rouse Hill and Chatswood in May 2019, capacity on the T1 North Shore Line has increased.
To complete the capacity upgrade, finishing work is taking place between Waitara and Waverton stations.
Significant work is also underway between Artarmon and Chatswood stations to prepare for the future connection of Sydney Metro Northwest and Sydney Metro City & Southwest at Chatswood.
About the work
Sydney Metro has engaged Laing O’Rourke to deliver the Northern corridor works on the T1 North Shore Line between Waitara and Waverton stations, and around Epping Station.
Laing O’Rourke is also delivering the work between Artarmon and Chatswood stations, including signal and electrical upgrades, drainage improvement work, the removal of existing rail infrastructure and construction of new track and systems.
Work started in March 2016 and will continue until 2024 when Sydney Metro City & Southwest is scheduled to open.
The majority of this work is carried out from inside the rail corridor during standard construction hours. Due to the nature of some activities and for the safety of workers, work can occur outside standard construction hours, including during scheduled Sydney Trains weekend trackwork. Properties close to the rail corridor will receive notifications when work is scheduled to occur.
