Minister for Transport and Infrastructure today unveiled the final design of the new Cudgegong Road Railway Station on the $8.3 billion Sydney Metro Northwest.
“This is the first station on the line at the start of the new Sydney Metro network, Australia’s biggest public transport project,” Mr Constance said.
“From the first half of 2019, Sydney’s new metro trains will service this booming area of Sydney’s North West every four minutes in the peak.”
The station will be built in a cutting and includes a distinctive leaf-shaped roof which has been sustainably designed including 100 per cent LED lighting.
Like all Sydney Metro stations, Australian-first platform screen door technology will be used, keeping people and objects away from the tracks and allowing trains to get in and out of stations much faster.
The station includes:
· 1,000 commuter car parking spaces;
· 6 bus spaces, 15 kiss-and-ride areas and 9 taxi spaces;
· Parking and storage for 55 bicycles; and
· Two new streets between Tallawong and Cudgegong roads.
Sydney Metro includes eight new railway stations, five upgraded stations and 4,000 commuter car parking spaces.
The project is Stage 1 of Sydney Metro, with metro rail to be extended under Sydney Harbour, through the CBD and beyond to Bankstown by 2024.
