Sydney Metro West: city-shaping transport investment report released

The Committee for Sydney and Sydney Business Chamber recently released a report which concludes that a faster Sydney Metro West has the potential to create tens of thousands of new jobs while helping to economically rebalance the city.

Sydney Metro West has the potential to be a city-shaping transport investment that supports the three cities vision for Greater Sydney. Our team used the SGS Transport Impact Model to measure housing, jobs and effective job density impacts of scenarios.

The report examines scenarios focusing on 15, 20 and 25 minute travel times between Parramatta and the Sydney CBD. The results show that the Metro will increase jobs and dwellings along this crucial Sydney corridor under every scenario - but the quicker the journey time the more jobs in Sydney’s west.
