En route to world class metro rail

It’s full steam ahead as Sydney’s brand new metro rail line takes shape. Tallawong Station in Rouse Hill is now complete – Australia’s first metro railway station!

It’s one of 13 metro stations that will open in the first half of next year, taking customers between Rouse Hill and Chatswood for the first time.

But that’s not the only ground breaking thing about it – just check out these cool credentials:

  • The trains are fully automated and driverless
  • Everything about this project is fully accessible –all stations have lifts, there’s level access between platforms and trains, two wheelchair spaces per train carriage and two multi-purpose areas per train for prams, luggage and bicycles.
  • Platform screen doors are a major safety feature – every metro station has them, they open and close in time with the train doors to keep people and objects like prams away from the tracks and they also allow trains to get in and out of stations much faster
  • The underground stations have floor to ceiling platform screen door structure which allow the platforms to be heated and cooled
  • Tallawong Station has 1000 commuter car parking spaces, four bus bays, 13 kiss-and-ride spaces and parking and storage for 55 bicycles.
