A GOLDEN ERA

A GOLDEN ERA

It’s an exciting time to be working in Transport. The scale of new infrastructure and services projects being delivered by our people across the state is enormous and unprecedented. Check out our timeline to see how we’re transforming NSW right now.

2017 Timetable
The new timetable delivers over 8,600 extra weekly services across Trains, Buses and Ferries. This is the largest ever capacity increase to Sydney’s train network in one go and saw 14,000 weekly bus timetables adjusted to make it easier to change between modes.

Wynyard Walk and Wynyard Station upgrade
Wynyard Walk and the refurbished Wynyard Station vastly improves the transport experience for thousands of commuters everyday. The station has a wider concourse, more gates and open space, with the trip through Wynyard Walk faster, completely accessible and covered from the elements, allowing for a smooth and dry journey.

CBD and South East Light Rail
The CBD and South East Light Rail will connect passengers from Circular Quay through to Randwick and Kingsford on a reliable, high capacity service. It will significantly improve public transport access to major sporting and entertainment facilities at Moore Park and Randwick along with the University of NSW, TAFE and health precincts.

New Sydney ferry fleet
Sydney’s ferry fleet has been boosted with six new Inner Harbour ferries along with additional Inner Harbour routes. The construction of four new Parramatta River ferries is expected to commence in 2018, with the first vessels in the water by mid-2019.

Sydney Metro Northwest
Sydney Metro Northwest is the first stage of Sydney Metro stretching from Chatswood to Rouse Hill. It will be the first fully-automated metro rail system in Australia. The eight new railway stations will have trains running every four minutes in the peak, that’s 15 trains an hour! There will also be 4,000 commuter car parking spaces in Sydney’s growing North West. 

WestConnex Motorway
WestConnex is a 33 km motorway that will ease congestion, reduce traffic on local streets and connect up two of Sydney’s main motorways — the M4 in Western Sydney and the M5 in south-western Sydney. It will give drivers more direct access to the Sydney CBD, Port Botany and Sydney Airport and finish the missing link in Sydney’s roads network.
