dbo:abstract
  • Sydney Metro is a fully automated rapid transit system located in Sydney, New South Wales, Australia. Opened in May 2019, it currently consists of a single line with 13 stations and 36 km (22.4 mi) of track. The network is controlled by the Sydney Metro agency, under the umbrella of the New South Wales Government's transport authority Transport for NSW; it is operated by Metro Trains Sydney. The first stage, the Sydney Metro Northwest, opened on 26 May 2019 between Tallawong station and Chatswood station. Construction has commenced on Sydney Metro City & Southwest, a tunnel extension across Sydney Harbour and through the Central Business District (CBD), then onto the existing Bankstown railway line to Bankstown station. This stage is expected to open in 2024. Sydney Metro West, a separate line between the Sydney CBD and Parramatta, was approved for financing by the New South Wales Government in June 2018 and is expected to open in the second half of the 2020s. Sydney was the first Australian city to realise a fully automated metro system. Plans and projects involving a high speed, rapid transit underground railway in Sydney date at least back to 2008, although an initial proposal was raised as early as 2001. Despite extensive plans for an underground network in the past, disputes over privatisation and funding had hampered government approval, delaying its inception. In spite of difficulties getting the project off the ground, government approval for what was initially known as the North West Rail Link, Sydney's first underground metro, was given in 2013. Route extensions and a name change to the Sydney Metro soon followed. (en)
