NSW Government Makes Further Investment in ‘More Trains, More Services’ in Sydney

The Government of New South Wales, Australia (NSW Government) has committed a further 180 million AUD (102 million GBP) to modernise the rail network at Central Station’s Grand Concourse in Haymarket, Sydney to accomodate more trains.

This project will provide passengers with more frequent and reliable services as part of the More Trains, More Services programme.

The funding adds to the NSW Government’s existing investment of over 5.3 billion AUD in this programme, which has already delivered 41 new Waratah Series 2 trains and more than 1700 additional weekly services since 2017.

In this next phase of improvements, critical railway infrastructure works to station platforms will be delivered to accommodate the new fleet of trains and allow up to 15 trains to operate from Central Station’s Grand Concourse every hour.

Minister for Transport, Veterans and Western Sydney David Elliott said:

“The More Trains, More Services initiative will simplify and bring our rail network into the 21st century, creating high capacity, turn up and go services for commuters.

“We are committed to future-proofing the existing rail network and ensuring it remains in the best shape for generations to come. The investment will upgrade rail infrastructure and improve signalling to increase reliability, resilience and frequency of services.”

These upgrades will also support service changes to integrate Sydney Metro City & Southwest services into the network from 2024.
