Mascot Substation Project

Program overview

Over the next ten years the More Trains, More Services program will simplify and modernise the rail network, creating turn up and go services for many customers. The current stage of the program will deliver improvements for the T4 Eastern Suburbs & Illawarra Line, South Coast Line and T8 Airport & South Line.

What are we doing at Mascot?

Transport for NSW is upgrading the power supply to support the introduction of the new fleet of trains operating along the T8 Airport Rail Line. Part of this program of works includes the construction of a new substation at Mascot.

The proposed project includes:

  • a new substation at 166 O’Riordan Street, Mascot
  • ancillary works, including new security fencing around the substation, lighting and CCTV
  • upgrade security fencing around the mobile antenna located behind the new substation
  • operation of the proposed substation.

Project update

A Review of Environmental Factors (REF) was prepared and community feedback invited from 3 December to 17 December 2019. We would like to thank the community for their feedback, which will help further develop the project.

Next steps

Feedback received in response to the REF will be considered in a Determination Report. The report will be prepared by Transport for NSW and we will let the community know as soon as it is available to view.

Construction will only start once all approvals have been finalised and a determination on the Project has been made by Transport for NSW.
