One of the greatest challenges to all cities, and older cities in particular, is providing necessary transit infrastructure to support high densities without relying on auto-centric models. However, with proper planning and support, transit infrastructure has the power to reshape cities. Yet, balancing multiple construction sites and delivering results at a high speed is a significant burden that is not easy to overcome. Sydney Metro North West offers a compelling example of these challenges, with major construction ongoing at 16 sites along the project, including eight planned or under construction stations. This project provides an excellent case study to understand the challenges, and benefits, of reshaping an aging city through new infrastructure. Presentations will examine the specifics of the project before a tour of multiple stations.
