Delivering Rail Benefits - Quickly

Delivery of Compass Connect will relieve pressure on the Sydney Trains network.

Compass Connect will:

  • reduce overcrowding and congestion on trains and at city stations,
  • enable increased rail capacity of up to 58,000 additional people to and from the city in peak periods, and
  • increase the productivity and utilisation of existing transport and infrastructure assets.

Delivery of Compass Connect will enable train frequency and peak period capacity to be increased on the:

     T1 Western & Northern Line,
     T2 Inner West & South Line,
     T3 Bankstown Line, and
     T4 Illawarra Line.

Additionally, Compass Connect will:

  • better connect the existing rail network with Sydney's growing CBD,
  • enable the rail network to be extended to unserviced areas,
  • minimise disruption for rail passengers during construction of the Sydney Metro, and
  • fast track the delivery of the Sydney Metro West.
