Are you effected by the Compulsory Acquisition Project of the Metro West?

In October 2019, the NSW Government announced the locations for most of the Sydney Metro West train lines – the city’s next underground metro railway.

Connecting the Sydney central business district (CBD) with Greater Parramatta, this once-in-a-century infrastructure investment will transform the city for generations to come. Sydney Metro West will double rail capacity between these two areas, linking new communities to rail services and unlocking housing supply and employment growth between the two CBDs. The NSW Government has identified the key precincts to be serviced by Sydney Metro West – Greater Parramatta, Sydney Olympic Park, The Bays, and the Sydney CBD, which will be operational in the second half of the 2020s.
Sydney Metro West will likely connect with the new Sydney Metro station at Martin Place or Barangaroo, and will connect Parramatta and Westmead with the Sydney CBD. The main stations are the CBD, The Bays Precinct, Olympic Park, Westmead, Parramatta, North Strathfield, Burwood North, Pyrmont, and Five Dock. If you think your property or business may be affected by Metro West, you should seek legal advice as soon as possible.
