$500M for NSW fast rail expected

Fast Rail

The expectation is for funding to go to the first stage of the Northern Corridor contributing to:

  • two new electrified tracks between Tuggerah and Wyong
  • new platforms and station upgrades
  • new bridges – including over the Wyong River.

It is expected the improvements could cut travel times

    • between Sydney and Newcastle to one hour
    • Sydney and Gosford to 25 minutes
    • Sydney to Wollongong to 45 minutes.

The fast rail will support Sydney’s population which is set to rise by a further 3.7 million by 2060
