Closure of Newcastle rail stations not technically a closure of whole line, State Government lawyer says
The line will have fully-accessible stations at Westmead, Parramatta, Sydney Olympic Park, North Strathfield, Burwood North, Five Dock, The Bays and Sydney city centre, with a 20 minute journey time.
The new line will reduce congestion on three major lines and take tens of thousands of cars off the road. Construction is expected to create more than 10,000 direct new jobs and around 70,000 indirect jobs.
The work at The Bays will allow the first of four TBMs to begin tunnel boring before the end of 2022.
Sydney Metro is continuing to work through a shortlist process to appoint a consortium to deliver the first Central Tunnelling Package, which includes 11km of twin tunnels from The Bays to Sydney Olympic Park. Three consortia were shortlisted for the contract in August:
Due to the scale of the project, the tunnelling and excavation works have been separated into geographically-specific contract packages between Westmead and central Sydney. The first tunnelling contract is expected to be awarded by the middle of 2021.
Sydney is currently building the Metro City and Southwest metro project, which will link Chatswood with the central business district and Bankstown, which will connect with the Tallawong – Chatswood Northwest metro line when completed in 2024.
