Here are the details from the consultant:

Sinclair Knight Merz (SKM) and Manidis Roberts have been employed by Sydney Metro to prepare a detailed Environmental Assessment for Stage 2 of the Sydney Metro Network.
Stage 2 (Central – Westmead) is a 24km underground metro line extending from Central to Westmead via Parramatta and the inner west.

Stage 2 stations will be located at Westmead, Parramatta, Camellia, Silverwater, Sydney Olympic Park, Strathfield, Burwood, Five Dock, Leichhardt, Camperdown and Broadway-Sydney University.

The purpose of our meeting is to gain your feedback on the Stage 2 proposal, related key issues and concerns. Your feedback will be addressed in the Environmental Assessment, which will be placed on exhibition for public comment early next year.
