Closure of Newcastle rail stations not technically a closure of whole line, State Government lawyer says
Homeowners and businesses will learn the precise locations of seven train stations for Sydney’s $20 billion-plus metro rail line from Parramatta to the central city as early as next week after state cabinet signed off on the final business case for the project.
While landowners near the sites face property acquisitions and disruption from construction of the Sydney Metro West over the coming years, many stand to financially benefit with an increase in property values.

The majority of properties acquired to build the stations and line are expected to be commercial, rather than residential. Much of the rail line will be underground.
The exact locations to be revealed include stations to be built at Westmead, Parramatta, Sydney Olympic Park, North Strathfield, Burwood North, Five Dock and the Bays Precinct at Rozelle.
Cabinet gave the green light to the final business case for Metro West on Thursday last week, multiple sources said.
The government has yet to make a final decision on whether to build stations at Pyrmont in the inner city, or Rydalmere, near Parramatta. It is also finalising the site of the CBD station, although it is expected to be under Hunter Street, linking Wynyard and Martin Place.
A large stabling yard and operations centre for the driverless trains will be built on former heavy industrial land at Camellia, near Parramatta. The suburb will double as the site for a stabling yard for Parramatta's multi billion-dollar light rail line.
