Sydney Metro Greater West


The North South Rail Line is a proposed railway line which will service the Western Parkland City including the new Western Sydney International Airport and Badgerys Creek Aerotropolis. It will become the spine for the Western Parkland City’s growth for generations, connecting communities and travellers with the rest of Sydney’s public transport network.

Sydney Metro Greater West is the first stage of the North South Rail Line, initially planned to run between St. Mary’s and the Aerotropolis. It will form the first stage of a broader future Western Sydney transport network, as outlined in the NSW Government’s Future Transport 2056, which identifies eventual connections north to Schofields, south to Campbelltown, and other new and expanded connections such as the East West Rail Link (from Parramatta to the Western Sydney Airport) and South West Rail Link Extension.

Mecone has assisted Government in investigating the potential land use responses to all of these projects and assessed how they would assist in building the future Western Parkland City.

Scope of Works

Mecone formed part of a broader project team which undertook a comprehensive land use analysis to inform the Strategic Business Case for the North South Rail Line, East West Rail Link, South West Rail Link Extension, as well as the Final Business Case for Sydney Metro Greater West. This included:

  • Investigating the current and future anticipated land uses around four corridors.
  • Developing a Base Case and Intervention Case Scenario.
  • Determine potential for land use change in vicinity of 20+ stations.
  • Work with urban design, economic, and value uplift experts to prepare inputs to business case process.
  • Assisting in full day Government stakeholder ‘charettes’ to develop potential land use responses.
