New underground line in Sydney Sydney
The state government of New South Wales today announced the location of seven stations on the new metro line, which is expected to open to the public by 2030.Metro stations will be built in Westmead, North Strathfield, Parramatta, North Bearwood, Sydney Olympic Park, Five Docks and Gulf Sites, said the State Prime Minister. Work starts next year. The metro will double the railway capacity between Parramatta and the Sydney CBD by more than half and reduce the travel time between the two centers by approximately 20 minutes. To implement the project, about 23 residential facilities and about 93 business sites will be acquired.
David Borger, executive director of the West Sydney Business Chamber, said work should begin as soon as possible in order to expand what he called Australia's fastest growing and most congested line.
