New trains to boost Sydney's Southwest Metro beyond Chatswood

The NSW Government has ordered 23 new trains to support the city's Metro railway beyond Chatswood into the city and on to Bankstown.

As part of the extension an additional 66-kilometre line will be constructed, due by 2024.

The contract package includes $1.7 billion for new metro trains and core rail systems as well as a $2 billion operations and maintenance component for Northwest Rapid Transit (NRT) to operate the combined Northwest and City and Southwest lines for a period of 15 years until 2034.

The NSW Government will own all the metro rail infrastructure, including the stations, tracks, and trains.

NRT was awarded the contract to operate and maintain the North West Metro Line between Rouse Hill and Chatswood for 15 years back in 2014.

The Metro line first opened in May 2019.
