Sydney Metro Announcement

Below is the text of the statement issued by Sydney Metro following the Premier's announcement of the Waterloo Metro Station.

Waterloo chosen as preferred location for new Sydney Metro station

The NSW Government announced this morning that Waterloo has been selected as the 31st railway station on Sydney Metro – Australia’s biggest public transport project.

The Sydney Metro project team will now work closely with stakeholders to finalise the exact location of the proposed station.

The local community will be kept up-to-date including in the Environmental Impact Statement, which is expected to be released in mid-2016.

A metro station at Waterloo will make this rapidly growing part of Sydney more accessible and take pressure off Redfern and Green Square stations.

Transport for NSW will now look into improving public transport at The University of Sydney through significant upgrades to Redfern Station and improved pedestrian connectivity through Redfern and Darlington associated with the Central to Eveleigh Urban Transformation Program.

The NSW Government will investigate a Special Infrastructure Contribution around Waterloo station to be reserved for the Sydney Metro project and associated infrastructure, under a similar model to the Parramatta Light Rail project.
