Closure of Newcastle rail stations not technically a closure of whole line, State Government lawyer says
Five Dock is divided over the news a new train station will be built in the heart of the suburb — with some fearing a repeat of the CBD light rail disruptions, while others looking forward to the economic injection from better transport.
He moved in just two months ago but on Monday arrived at work to discover the building will be demolished to make way for one of Sydney's new Metro West train stations.
"I didn't have any idea, not even the landlords knew," he said.
"I am disappointed because I put a lot of time and effort to find the right premises … and now I've got to start all over again, so that's going to be the hard part.
"I am right in the heart of Five Dock and to find that again is going to be very, very hard."
Mr Mirarchi said he knew the metro was coming to Five Dock but its exact location came as "a bit of a shock".
On Monday, the Government confirmed seven new train stations for the Metro West project between the CBD and western suburbs and said the new train line would be open to the public by 2030.
The underground line will include stops at Westmead, Parramatta, Sydney Olympic Park, North Strathfield, Burwood North, Five Dock and the Bays Precinct.
The Government will acquire 93 businesses and 23 residential properties to build the project.
