The New South Wales state government has announced the metro rail line from central Sydney to Parramatta is to be opened by 2030.

Almost 135 properties will be compulsorily acquired for construction of the $20 billion-plus metro rail line, including the Hunter Connection building, offices between Union Street and Pyrmont Bridge Road, as well as a number of others in the CBD including 28-34 O'Connell Street. The stations will be built at:

  • Westmead
  • Parramatta
  • Sydney Olympic Park
  • North Strathfield
  • Burwood North
  • Five Dock
  • The Bays Precinct at Rozelle
  • Hunter Street (CBD)
  • Pyrmont

If you believe you will be affected by the potential acquisition get in contact with us as soon as possible.

If you own your property our work is at no cost to you, as the Authority is legally required to pay our costs and we will only seek payment from the Authority – not you.
