Recently there have been flyers handed out, along with a newsletter about changes for the Sydney Metro, these changes have occurred due to strong community feedback.

These changes include reduced closures of the line, fewer trees removed, Heritage building retained and repurposed, there are also other changes that will be mentioned later.

One thing that is confusing though is the fact that they will be using the existing tracks, they said that only a few sections would need replacing, the reason this is confusing is that Sydney Metro seemed to tell us before that they can’t use these tracks.

Metro upgrades for the stations are now supposedly going to take 1 year instead of 2, yet time will tell. With this closure reductions, there will hopefully be less disruptions.

Yet this makes you wonder, with all of this ‘good news’ are they still hiding anything? With things like not being able to use the old tracks and the decision changing, are they just putting a positive spin on things, or are these improvements for the better?

If you want to learn more, there are going to be more community feedback sessions over the next month, with more information coming.
