The North West Rail Link is a priority rail infrastructure project for the NSW Government.

The new rapid transit rail link will connect Sydney's booming North West region and is the city’s biggest transport infrastructure project since the construction of the Sydney Harbour Bridge almost a century ago.

Eight new railway stations are proposed at: Cherrybrook, Castle Hill, Showground, Norwest, Bella Vista, Kellyville, Rouse Hill and Cudgegong Road.

Also planned are 4,000 commuter car parking spaces.

The rail link includes 15km of twin tunnels between Bella Vista and Epping, a 4km skytrain viaduct and the conversion of the existing Epping to Chatswood rail link to the new generation single deck system.
