Sydney Metro is Australia’s largest rail project, spanning a distance of 65 kilometres and 31 stations. It includes new track between Epping and Cudgegong Road and between the CBD and Sydenham via Waterloo, and the conversion of existing Sydney Trains heavy rail to metro rail on the Bankstown Line and Macquarie Line. Sydney Metro will run from Sydney’s Hills District in the northwest via Macquarie Park, Chatswood and the CBD to Bankstown.

The Sydney Metro project offers significant opportunities to shape both how the city functions and patterns of future growth.

Scope of Works

Mecone was engaged by Transport for NSW to outline the city shaping influence of Sydney Metro at the metropolitan level and to analyse the role of the project in achieving the vision for the city and strategic land use and transport directions. Mecone’s scope of works included:

  • Analysis of the city shaping influence of Sydney Metro, including implications to destinations/strategic centres along the route and its sphere of influence;
  • Statistical and spatial modelling of the opportunity Sydney Metro provides in linking people to greater employment, education, shopping and recreational choices; and
  • Preparation of mapping, graphics, presentation and reports with the findings of the analyses.
