About Sydney Metro Northwest Places

Landcom and Sydney Metro are working in partnership on the long term planning and development of Transport for NSW owned land surrounding new Sydney Metro Northwest stations. This program is called Sydney Metro Northwest Places.

Through this partnership, Landcom and Sydney Metro will facilitate delivery of diverse, well-designed places for current and future communities.

As the developable land around each station ranges in size, each project offers different development opportunities for current and future communities. To deliver sustainable places that maximise the benefits of the new metro, each concept proposal will respond to the unique character, identity and location of that project site. Development of these projects will occur over the next 10 years.

This program aims to capture the opportunities created by the Sydney Metro, Australia’s biggest public transport project. The first stage is Sydney Metro Northwest, which is currently under construction and due to open in the first half of 2019.

Call for Expression of Interest

The Call for Expressions of Interest Information Memorandum was released in March 2018 and contains information about the sale of proposed sites at Cudgegong Road Station South.
