Excitement builds for Sydney Metro

Crows Nest was buzzing on Sunday 26 May as the community had the chance to visit the new Crows Nest Metro Station for an Open Day.

Member for Willoughby Tim James said over seven thousand people turned out to view the soon to be completed station, a testament to the excitement that is building locally.

“The Sydney Metro is a game-changing investment in our public transport that will transform how we move across Sydney and it’s coming to Crows Nest very soon,” Mr James said.

“With two stations in the Willoughby electorate at Crows Nest and Chatswood, the Sydney Metro will greatly improve local connectivity, providing direct access to the CBD and beyond, with a trip from Crows Nest to Martin Place taking only seven minutes.”

“The Sydney Metro City and Sydenham line will open mid-year, extending the existing line from Chatswood to Tallawong in North-West Sydney that opened in 2019.” 

“A further extension of the line from Sydenham to Bankstown will open in 2025.”

“The new station at Crows Nest is state of the art, with platform screen doors and will provide reliable, modern, turn up and go services, with peak services every four minutes.”

“Travel from Chatswood will also be transformed with a trip on the Metro from Chatswood to Gadigal (near Town Hall) taking 13 minutes compared to the current 23 minutes to Town Hall using Sydney Trains.”

“This is a visionary project that will change our lives for the better and there’s not long to wait now,” Mr James concluded.

The Sydney Metro is a project of the former Liberal Government and is delivering 4 new metro lines, 46 stations and 113km of rail by 2030.
