The entire deck of Sydney Metro’s elevated skytrain is now locked in place high in the air between Bella Vista and Rouse Hill, with the last massive concrete segment lifted and fixed in position.
Transport and Infrastructure Minister Andrew Constance said the skytrain sits an average 9m in the air alongside Windsor Road and Old Windsor Road, with new metro trains to run on it every four minutes in the peak.
Mr Constance said:
“This is a big milestone for Australia’s biggest public transport project and gets us one step closer to metro services running in the booming North West of Sydney”
“Every massive concrete segment that makes up the Sydney Metro skytrain is now in place and connected, and soon we’ll see tracks being laid and overhead wiring going into place.”
The skytrain deck sits on 120 concrete piers and already more than 4,600 people have worked on the structure. Work continues on the new 270m long railway bridge over Windsor Road at Rouse Hill at the end of the skytrain, which will take new metro services to the new Cudgegong Road station.
