The newest rail corridor will serve as the transport backbone of future developments in the South West Growth Centre.
The NSW Government has invested over $500 million in public transport infrastructure for the South Western suburbs of Sydney. Sydney thus far, has seen the fastest population growth in Camden LGA, along with an increased dependency on cars due to the lack of reliable public transport in the area. The opening of the South West Rail Link (SWRL) in the beginning of 2015 has provided a reliable link to major employment centres including Liverpool, Parramatta and the Sydney CBD, which was once only accessible by motor vehicle and bus. It will continue to have an impact on south western Sydney due to increased accessibility in the region.
The SWRL has delivered:
- 11.4km new rail line from Glenfield to Leppington
- Two new stations at Edmondson Park and Leppington
- Commuter car parking at both stations
- A train stabling facility at Rossmore
- Glenfield Station upgrades; including bus/rail interchange and commuter car parking
- Rail flyovers at Glenfield North and Glenfield South
