Train station upgrade announcement

The Minister for Transport, The Hon Andrew Constance MP, has announced that Macquarie University train station will be closed from 30 September 2018 for around seven months to enable conversion to the new Sydney Metro Northwest.

Sydney Metro Northwest will enable train travel for the population of Sydney’s northwest corridor from Rouse Hill to Chatswood and, most importantly, will stop at Macquarie University station. This will mean a better-connected train service to the University, with trains every four minutes during peak times.

During this time, the University will be supported by the new Station Link public transport network. Station Link will provide high frequency, turn-up-and-go services to stations between Epping and Chatswood across seven new routes. The services will be run using more than 120 new, fully accessible, air conditioned buses.

During the busiest parts of the day there will be a service at least every six minutes, with 110 services per hour. Station Link will include a dedicated high frequency service to Macquarie University campus from Epping Station. In addition, Transport for NSW will increase the capacity on existing bus routes supporting the University.

The University has been working closely with Transport for NSW in the lead up to this announcement, ensuring there is adequate public transportation to the University and Macquarie Park district during the closure.

Should you have any concerns about the closure or would like further information, please get in touch with the Macquarie University Station Upgrade Project Team at, or visit the Transport for NSW project website.
