Sydney Trains | Direct journeys to the city and peak services double on the South West Rail Link

Minister for Transport and Infrastructure Andrew Constance has today announced the integration of the South West Rail Link with the Sydney Trains network, meaning there’ll be direct journeys to the city and twice as many services in the peak.

Customers can now catch a train every 15 minutes, instead of every 30 minutes in the peak, with the line becoming part of the T2 Inner West and South Line, travelling to the city via Granville.

It is anticipated the peak 15 minute frequency will remain in place for most of the day. Some low-demand services in the off-peak will continue to run every 30 minutes to Glenfield and Liverpool.

A new train station for the Sydney metro line will be built at Waterloo in the city's south, dashing the ambitions of Sydney University and requiring thousands of public housing tenants to shift temporarily.

Unveiling the site for the new station, Premier Mike Baird released concept plans on Wednesday for an extra 10,000 homes – many of which will be units in high-rise apartment buildings – to be built over the next two decades near the new train station at Waterloo.
The entire area earmarked for redevelopment comprises 40 hectares, and includes the 13ha Waterloo housing estate where 4000 social housing tenants live in blocks between Wellington and Phillip streets.
The housing estate comprises two 30-storey towers – named Turanga and Matavai – four 16-storey buildings, and a large number of two and three-storey blocks owned by the state's Land and Housing Corporation. All of these buildings that date back to the 1950s will eventually face the wrecking ball.

Sydney Metro Northwest | Tunnels 97 per cent complete

A third Sydney Metro Northwest tunnel boring machine (TBM) has now finished work on Australia’s longest railway tunnels, which are now 97 per cent complete.

TBM1 Elizabeth arrived at Cherrybrook in a rare night-time breakthrough on December 1, ending her role in building the twin 15 km metro tunnels from Bella Vista to Epping.

More than 29 km of the 30 km tunnelling task is now complete. The only remaining mega machine, TBM2 Florence, has about 850 m left to dig and is also on its way to Cherrybrook.

Mega borer Elizabeth resurfaces on Sydney Metro Northwest

The third Sydney Metro Northwest tunnel boring machine to finish tunnelling has been pulled out of the ground in a precision operation.

Tunnel Boring Machine 1 Elizabeth recently finished her journey at Cherrybrook after digging 9km of Australia’s longest railway tunnels.

Its massive 105-tonne cutter-head has been lifted 10m to the surface using a 600 tonne crane.

Tunnelling is now 99 per cent complete with only one mega tunnelling machine, TBM2 Florence, remaining underground with less than 500m of tunnelling to go.

Night safe area is in the middle of the train. As I remember the rest of the train is closed for passengers at night?

I think it's just an area which tends to be more brightly lit, has more intense CCTV coverage and is also near where the train guard's compartment is located.

Never seen that before. It may have been done a while ago.
