News on Leppington Station

Located just 1.5km from Willowdale, the new Leppington station is part of the new South West Rail Link. These works include a major upgrade of Glenfield Station and bus/rail interchange and a new passenger rail line from Glenfield to Leppington via Edmondson Park. The Government recently announced that Leppington train station is expected to be operational in 2015, one year ahead of schedule. The South West Rail Link includes two new train stations – Leppington and Edmondson Park – and will be the first heavy rail line to open in Sydney since services started on the Epping to Chatswood link in 2009.

Trains will initially run every half an hour. At first they will run only in a shuttle to Liverpool. Ms Berejiklian said they would eventually connect to other parts of the network, but would not say how or where.

"We know that many customers from this part of the community want to go to western Sydney, they want to go to the Airport Line, they want to go to the Sydney CBD [central business district]," Ms Berejiklian said.
