Sydney Metro - Western Sydney Airport line fast-tracked


Big news for the Western Parkland City (WPC) today, with the State and Federal Governments committing significant funding to expedite delivery of the new metro line, which will run from the Western Sydney Airport up to St Marys.

Six new stations are proposed for the line, which will safely and reliably connect commuters to jobs, universities, parks, restaurants, schools and more within just 15 minutes!

Construction will get underway before the end of the year, with the project expected to create around 14,000 much-needed jobs between now and when it's completed in 2026 – synced up with the opening of the Airport and the first buildings in the Aerotropolis.

Connecting Western Sydney to Western Sydney is an absolute must if government, industry and the community is to achieve our collective grand plans for the future of the Western Parkland City. So we're thrilled to see it all coming together. The future is not so far away now!

Formal planning for the Sydney Metro – Western Sydney Airport project continues, with the exact location of all six stations to be determined. The Sydney Metro team has been consulting with communities and experts for many months, and continues to do so. For now, we can confirm the line will travel between:

  • Two stations within the airport site, at the airport terminal and at the airport business park;
  • A station serving the commercial heart of the Western Sydney Aerotropolis;
  • A station at St Marys, interchanging with the existing suburban railway station and connecting customers with the rest of Sydney's rail system;
  • A station at Orchard Hills; and
  • A station at Luddenham to service a future education, innovation and commercial precinct.
