As is well known by now, the Berejiklian government has set aside $6.4 billion for Metro West – its signature rail project –which it wants opened by 2030. Now that the State government has confirmed the location of stations for Metro West and committed to beginning work next year, Transport Minister Andrew Constance has said “While we can build it alone – we have proven this already – there comes a time when we will need our friends in Canberra to make a contribution to metro trains in Sydney.” Watch this space.
It seems so soon, but it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas.

Performances will take place nightly between 6.30pm and 7.30pm and will be followed by a light show every 25 minutes from sunset until 11pm. Christmas Activation
