Closure of Newcastle rail stations not technically a closure of whole line, State Government lawyer says
The North South Rail Link between Western Sydney Aerotropolis and St Marys will be a turn-up-and-go driverless metro service.
Following the success of the Sydney Metro northwest network opening in May, the NSW Government revealed more than $2 billion worth of funding for the construction of the line had been secured as part of the 2019/20 budget.
The funding commitment comes as the NSW Government confirmed future driverless metro services will be built between Parramatta and Western Sydney Aerotropolis as an extension of the Sydney Metro west, as well as Bankstown to Liverpool as an extension of the Sydney Metro southwest, Tallawong Station at Rouse Hill to St Marys Station to link the Sydney Metro northwest to the North South Metro Link.

NSW Treasurer Dominic Perrottett said construction for the project would start in 2021, “with an aim to deliver new rail and road that will make it easier for people to get to their homes and their families”.
The new metro line from St Marys to the Western Sydney Aerotropolis via Western Sydney International Airport will connect to the existing T1 Western train line at St Marys, and was previously announced as part of the Western Sydney City Deal.
“The railway line will connect passengers and employees to the new Western Sydney Airport and the Western Sydney Aerotropolis,” Mr Perrottett said.
