Australia’s Biggest Public Transport Project – Sydney Metro Sydney Metro is Australia’s biggest ever public transport project. From 2024, when Sydney Metro is extended into the Sydney CBD, a metro rail will expand from the cities booming North West region (one of the fastest growing metropolitan areas in the world), under the depths of perhaps the most famous harbour in the Southern Hemisphere, through to new underground stations in the CBD, and beyond to the South West corridor.
This massive undertaking will allow for 200 trains an hour to run (similar numbers to Paris, London and New York) and will have a potential to move 40,000 people per hour. Danterr – Entrenched in Stage 2 Stage 2 of the Sydney Metro is the construction of a 30km extension of metro rail from the end of the Sydney Metro Northwest (this line currently ends at Chatswood on the north side of Sydney Harbour) to the CBD, then onto Bankstown in Sydney’s south west. This involves tunneling under Sydney Harbour, the construction of seven new metro stations, and the upgrading of 11 existing stations. Danterr is thrilled to be part of a new generation, world-class, fast, safe and reliable metro service. When complete Sydney Metro will easily connect customers to where they want to go. When services start (2019), customers will no longer need timetables – they’ll just turn up and go with a train every four minutes during peak times. Futurist technology will keep customers connected at all stages of their journey, with detailed travel apps guiding customers from home, to the station, onto the train, the to their destination. This approach will help customers achieve their daily tasks, whether it’s getting to work, meetings, school or education, sport, a day out or running errands and of course, getting home.
