About Sydney Metro Trains Facility South
All Sydney Metro operations will be controlled and monitored from the Sydney Metro Trains Facility in Rouse Hill, which is being built as part of Sydney Metro Northwest, along with maintenance and stabling.
Stabling will also occur at the Sydney Metro Trains Facility South (SMTFS), a smaller supplementary facility at Marrickville that will provide for overnight stabling of Sydney Metro trains and light maintenance activities to minimise the requirement to send trains to the Sydney Metro Trains Facility at Rouse Hill.
A planning modification went on exhibition in June 2017 proposing to build the SMTFS on industrial land used to launch the tunnel boring machines that will build the new twin railway tunnels between Marrickville and Barangaroo.
The size and capacity of the proposed stabling facility will be confirmed as part of the modification process and will take into consideration operational requirements.
Marrickville, bounded by the water detention basin (Sydenham Pit), Sydney Steel Road, Edinburgh Road and the rail corridor.
