The revolution of Sydney’s public transport network has reached a new milestone with the NSW Government releasing the Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the tunnels and new stations that will form the new CBD Metro said the Tourism & Transport Forum Australia (TTF).
“Sydney’s public transport system is undergoing a historic expansion of new train services and additional capacity that will greatly improve how people commute across the city,” said Margy Osmond, TTF CEO.
“The CBD Metro, when up and running, will take the pressure off Sydney’s busiest train stations and provide a new major interchange station right in the heart of the CBD at Martin Place.
“TTF has been a vocal advocate for the expansion of public transport and the adoption of metro-style services in Australia’s major cities.
“It’s fantastic to see the NSW Government enthusiastically pushing ahead with their plans to expand the North West Metro under Sydney Harbour and onto Bankstown.
“Transport through Sydney will be radically transformed in the coming decade as key projects such as the North West Metro, WestConnex, NorthConnex, CBD and Eastern Suburbs Light Rail, Western Sydney Light Rail, and now the CBD and South West Metro come online.”
