Campsie to Canterbury power upgrade
Explore this page
As part of Sydney Metro City & Southwest, a new traction power system is required, including new substations and power supply cables. This includes a new high voltage (33kv) power supply cable between Canterbury and Campsie Station.
Traction power is an electricity network designed to support train networks. The Sydney Metro network traction power system will be separated and operate independently from the Sydney Trains network.
The new power cable will run from the Ausgrid electrical substation near Pat O’Conner Reserve, Canterbury to the new traction substation near Campsie Station.
The cable will run predominantly underneath the roadway, to avoid impacts to properties in the area. There will also be a section underneath Pat O’Conner Reserve in Canterbury.
Planning and compliance
Sydney Metro received planning approval on 19 December 2018 to upgrade the T3 Bankstown Line between Sydenham and Bankstown to metro standards.
The Submissions and Preferred Infrastructure Report for the Sydenham to Bankstown Metro upgrade was on exhibition until 18 July 2018.
Systems Connect is a Joint Venture (JV) between CPB Contractors and UGL Engineering. The JV has been contracted to convert the excavated tunnel into a working railway for Sydney Metro City & Southwest. Line-wide work includes the permanent systems, services and building works required for metro trains to travel through the Sydney Metro City & Southwest tunnels.
