The NWRL project is a key priority for the NSW Government. The NWRL will deliver a new high frequency single deck train system initially operating as a shuttle between Cudgegong Road and Chatswood. The permanent infrastructure delivered as part of the North West Rail Line Surface and Viaduct Civil works includes approximately 4.5 km of viaduct between Balmoral Road and Rouse Hill Station including crossings over Memorial Avenue, Samantha Riley Drive, Windsor Road, Sanctuary Drive and White Hart Drive; bulk earthworks requirements including all cut, fill and embankments between Balmoral Road and Cudgegong Road, and bridges over Windsor Road at Rouse Hill and over Second Ponds Creek. It also provides for station structures to be incorporated onto the viaduct at the Kellyville and Rouse Hill.
