Closure of Newcastle rail stations not technically a closure of whole line, State Government lawyer says
Sydney's North West Rail Link could possibly be run by a private operator, the NSW government says.
A 23km rail line through northwest Sydney is expected to open in about a decade.
Asked if a private operator could run the train service, Transport Minister Gladys Berejiklian said the government had an open mind.
"We don't want to rule out any options at this stage in relation to operations," she told reporters in Sydney.
"We have an open mind as to what the industry will tell us, we have an open mind as to what is possible."
Ms Berejiklian promised commuters would pay the same fares regardless of who ran the service.
"Commuters will not pay any more on any of those stations than they would anywhere else on the network, relative to the distance they're travelling," she said.
The rail line is expected to cost between $7.5 and $8.5 billion.
It includes eight stations, 15km of tunnelling, 1000 new commuter car parks and a 4km skytrain between Bella Vista and Rouse Hill.
