Providing connections to Sydney’s second international airport.
As Australia’s biggest public transport project, the Sydney Metro will significantly change how people move around Sydney. The Sydney Metro Western Sydney Airport line is a new 23km metro line that will run from St Marys to Bringelly, the future home of the Western Sydney Aerotropolis.
The Western Sydney Aerotropolis is planned as a future economic hub for industries ranging from aerospace and defence, manufacturing, healthcare, freight and logistics, agribusiness, education and research. All facilities will be centred around Sydney’s second international airport, the Nancy-Bird Walton Airport.
The Western Sydney Airport metro line includes 10.4km of twin Tunnel Boring Machine (TBM) tunnels in two sections and will include two new stations within the airport site. The new “turn-up-and-go” metro services are fast, reliable and Australia’s only fully accessible and driverless train service. The line will connect travellers to and from Western Sydney International Airport with Sydney’s existing public transport system.
