NSW Premier and Minister for Western Sydney Barry O’Farrell and Minister for Transport Gladys Berejiklian today announced the NSW Government will secure an additional public transport corridor through Sydney’s booming North West Growth Centre.

A public discussion paper outlines two potential corridors and will be used to consult with the community. The two options are:

  • Cudgegong Rd to Riverstone: from the end of the North West Rail Link heading northwest to the Richmond Line south of Riverstone Station, a distance of about 3.3km; and,
  • Cudgegong Rd to Schofields and Marsden Park: from the end of the North West Rail Link heading west to Schofields Station then further on to Marsden Park, about 6.8km.

Ms Berejiklian said the transport corridor will give’ certainty as families and businesses move into the North West Growth Centre’.

The corridor options will be on public exhibition until May 18 and a public forum will be held at Rouse Hill Town Centre on March 31.
