Project Profile
The South West Rail Link - a new 11.4 kilometre line from Glenfield to Leppington opened to customers on Sunday, 8 February 2015 a year ahead of schedule and $300 million under budget. The new link will provide essential infrastructure for the predicted future increases in population in Sydney's south-west.

The extension of the South West Rail Link is one of 19 major transport corridors across Sydney identified for protection in the NSW Long Term Transport Master Plan, to meet future transport requirements. The corridor will provide a north-south connection through the South West Growth Centre and the Broader Western Sydney Employment Area, including the site for the second Sydney airport at Badgerys Creek announced by the Australian Government.

The extension corridor is proposed to connect Leppington Station to Bringelly and then head in two directions: north to the Western Line near St Marys; and south to Narellan.

A number of core stations are proposed in the existing and planned centres of Rossmore, Bringelly, North Bringelly, Oran Park and Narellan. A station is also proposed at Badgerys Creek to service the second Sydney Airport. The corridor allows for additional stations if required.

Second Sydney Airport
The Australian Government has announced that Badgerys Creek will be the site of the future second Sydney Airport. The proposed corridor for the South West Rail Link extension includes a station at Badgerys Creek.
