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.

Upgrades include:

  • a new substation at 166 O’Riordan Street, Mascot
  • new lighting and CCTV and security fencing around the substation and the mobile antenna located behind the new substation
  • provision for new power supply cables to connect from the substation to Mascot train station.

Project update

A Review of Environmental Factors (REF) was prepared and community feedback was invited during public consultation from 3 December to 17 December 2019. We would like to thank the community for their feedback which was taken into consideration as part of the planning approval process.

All submissions received have been responded to in the Determination Report which outlines the issues raised and conditions of approval to be adhered to by the project.

Next steps

The construction work contract has been awarded and construction will start in late 2020. We will advise the community prior to the commencement of this work.

Every effort will be made to minimise any construction impacts on the local community and we will continue to keep the community informed about upcoming activities through regular updates.
