Video: SkyTrains In Sydney North West Rail Plans

First high-speed rail, now sky trains! Well, sort of. Expanded plans for Sydney’s $8 billion rail link from Epping to the North West now include a 4km elevated section at Bella Vista. Pylons will run alongside Windsor Road to Rouse Hill, and though they won’t go over homes, the track will reportedly be close to some back yards.

The newly proposed stations at Bella Vista and Cudgegong Road take the number of stations to eight. Rouse Hill, Kellyville, Norwest, Hills Centre, Castle Hill and Cherrybrook were already on the plan.

In addition, the government says the 23km North West link includes 15km of tunnels – the longest rail tunnel ever constructed in Sydney. [Transport NSW via Daily Telegraph]
