The proposed Sydney Metro West will complement the existing T1 Western Line between the Sydney CBD and Parramatta, which is expected to be overcrowded by the early 2030s, despite ongoing upgrade works. The Government has yet to confirm the alignment, or release a business case, but it is intended that new stations will be constructed at key precincts along the route including Parramatta, Sydney Olympic Park, The Bays Precinct and Sydney CBD, along with an interchange at an existing T1 Northern Line station - either Concord West or North Strathfield. Further stations are under consideration along this route.

An initial delivery strategy for Metro West was released in April 2018, which comprised several packages, including two tunnel packages: Westmead to The Bays Precinct and The Bays Precinct to Sydney CBD.

The Bays Precinct - Sydney CBD package would see construction of a circa four kilometre tunnel between stations at The Bays Precinct and Sydney CBD, with the potential for an additional station at Pyrmont under consideration. Tunnelling works around The Bays Precinct would likely have to navigate the future WestConnex M4-M5 interchange at Rozelle and associated link to the proposed Western Harbour Tunnel.

The package is proposed to be procured under an incentivised traget cost contract

Industry consultation underway until 18 May 2018. The NSW Government is seeking feedback on the initial delivery strategy with the procurement approach and package composition open to change.

The preferred alignment and delivery strategy are expected to be announced in late-2018 or early-2019.
