Smooth first week for new Sydney metro
About 140,000 passengers checked out Sydney’s first heavy rail metro line, the “M Metro North West Line”, connecting Tallawong with Chatswood. In reality, the line is not entirely new: it re-uses parts of the former Sydney Trains underground lines.
The driverless trains performed well, except for a small glitch with one train, which was solved by manually overrunning its control.
Passengers heading for Sydney still need to transit to the Sydney Train network, but this will change in 2024, when the second section of the line will open.
