Sydney Metro West will deliver a new direct, 24 kilometre underground rail connection between the CBDs of Parramatta and Sydney.
Tunnelling work along the line is to be delivered under three packages:
- Western Package (Westmead to Sydney Olympic Park)
- Central Package (Sydney Olympic Park to The Bays Precinct), and
- Eastern Package (The Bays Precinct to Sydney CBD).
The Eastern Package would see construction of a circa four kilometre tunnel between new stations at The Bays Precinct and Sydney CBD. 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.
