New Metro West Railway Much Needed for Western Sydney


Release Date: 14/11/2016
The Sydney Business Chamber Western Sydney Director, David Borger, says the new underground metro railway project from Parramatta to Sydney CBD will be a huge relief for the commuters of Western Sydney.
 
Following the State Government’s announcement that the Sydney Metro West project will be the Government’s next major public transport project, Mr Borger says the railway line will take pressure off existing public transport, such as buses and trains.
 
“I am pleased the Government has seen the need for a new metro line from Parramatta to Sydney CBD. New railway stations will be created at Parramatta, Sydney Olympic Park, the Bays Precinct and Sydney CBD, which is great news for commuters.
 
“Sydney Olympic Park will be the new place to live and work; this is the beginning of a great new future for the suburb.
 
“Connecting Sydney Olympic Park will also provide greater transport access to the soon-to-be redeveloped ANZ Stadium, ensuring it remains a top-tier arena for major events.
 
“The current Western line is congested so this is a welcome addition to the already announced light rail project for Parramatta. The two projects are both needed to keep the precinct alive.”
 
Mr Borger said the Government needed to consider creating a new station at Westmead once additional stations were determined for the new Sydney West Metro line.
 
“A new railway line will need to include a station at Westmead to service the growing number of jobs and residents it will experience in the future.

“This is a project that will reunite Sydney again. Once complete, we will no longer have the divide between east and west. This is going to supercharge Parramatta and will connect Western Sydney and Sydney CBD.

“This is the very definition of a mega project. It will take time and money and support from everyone. I think it’s great there is now a commitment to do it,” Mr Borger said.
