Planning is progressing for the Cherrybrook Station Precinct to build on the $8.3 billion Sydney Metro Northwest project.

This service will deliver a reliable turn-up-and-go train system linking Cherrybrook with Norwest and Sydney’s metro train network, as well as a new Cherrybrook metro station, due to commence operations in 2019.


The station has the potential to become a vibrant local town centre and community focal point, with new shops, amenities (including car parking) and open spaces, while protecting Cherrybrook’s existing neighbourhood character.


There is wide agreement that the most sustainable form of urban renewal is to create high-quality precincts on public transport nodes, and we are working to create these across Sydney, including in the northwest.


The Department is working with Landcom as well as local councils, Transport for NSW, Sydney Metro and other agencies to progress planning for the station area (government land).


Planning for the Cherrybrook Station Precinct (government land) builds on a significant body of planning for the area. This includes the North West Rail Link Corridor Strategy, Cherrybrook Station Structure Plan and North West Rail Link Corridor Strategy – Issues Paper.
