Sydney’s Rail Future is a long-term plan to increase the capacity of Sydney’s rail network through investment in new services and upgrading of existing infrastructure. Baulderstone and Transport for NSW tasked Building Dilapidations with the job of providing dilapidation reports for the North West Rail Link project.

Sydney Metro Northwest (formerly the North West Rail Link) delivered eight new railway stations across Sydney’s growing North West. It is the first fully-automated metro rail system in Australia with trains running every four minutes and 4000 commuter car parking spaces.

It’s a five-stage program to meet the challenges of a growing population and the needs of customers in the future.

  • The plan, released in 2012, aims to modernise and transform Sydney’s rail network.
  • The plan identifies Sydney Metro Northwest as the first stage of Sydney’s new metro network, operating Sydney’s Rail Future – a three tier railway.
  • Fully-automated metro trains with levels of customer service not seen before in Sydney.
  • Sydney’s Rail Future forms part of the NSW Long Term Transport Master Plan.
