Good decision. Up until now the Barangaroo station was only an option on the new line.

Most people are saying University of Sydney and I agree too.

The state government has also in the 2015-16 budget allocated funds for a bus rapid transit line to the northern beaches from Sydney CBD to Mona Vale:

Budget 2015: $42 million allocated for the Bus Rapid Transit System
Quote:
THE State Government has allocated $42 million in the Budget to preparing the northern beaches for the Bus Rapid Transit System.

And another $42 million of Budget money has been earmarked for road upgrades to support the new Northern Beaches Hospital.

The funds are part of the $633 million, five-year Northern Beaches Transport Action Plan, announced by the Baird Government last year.

The plan promises road upgrades around the planned Northern Beaches Hospital, bus rapid transit, five new public transport interchanges and commuter carparks.

The bus works would be on strategic corridors and increase timetable reliability, according to budget papers.

The Bus Rapid Transit System would be characterised by a bus every five minutes, and run between the Sydney CBD and Mona Vale.

The BRT will use indented bus bays, and the new interchanges and carparks.[

The $42 million for road upgrades to support the Northern Beaches Hospital will go towards widening the Wakehurst Parkway and Warringah Rd and providing an underpass at the busy intersection.

The works are due in 2018 when the hospital opens.

The $42 million could be supplemented by an additional $78 million from Restart NSW, pending business case approval, according to budget papers.

State Liberal MP for Davidson Jonathan O’Dea said the upgrading work would benefit everyone.

“The hospital is the catalyst for major new road works, which will bring far reaching benefits to northern Sydney motorists,” he said.

Some photos of the current 'T-Way' bus rapid transit that operates in the Western Suburbs. It's operates in an area that is low density and has considerable sprawl.

Four to bid for NSW inter-city EMU contract
Friday, July 10, 2015



NEW South Wales (NSW) state minister for transport and infrastructure Mr Andrew Constance confirmed on July 9 that four suppliers have been shortlisted to bid for a contract to supply 65 eight-car inter-city EMUs

The trains will be delivered between 2019 and 2024 for use on NSW TrainLink services from Sydney to the South Coast, Blue Mountains, Central Coast and Newcastle. The introduction of the new fleet will enable the withdrawal of V-Set trains and redeployment of the more modern Oscar EMUs on the Sydney Trains suburban network, replacing other life-expired rolling stock

I hope they choose USyd for personal reasons, as I think it will open up Broadway a lot more. But Waterloo is probably better from a residents perspective.

I am sorry if this has already been stated, but will they build entirely new track from Chatswood to Artarmon before it moves off to Victoria Square, or will it be on the existing tracks?

New track, new corridor.
