REVEALED: map with 39 new train stations as part of a multi-billion dollar network making Sydney one of the most connected cities in the world – but you'll wait VERY long
- Map shows the plan for Sydney to have 39 new stations and four new metro lines
- The network would shorten travel time by adding new stops in the east and west of Sydney
- The billion-dollar plan is perhaps not ready for commuters for four decades
A map has revealed the proposed new multi-billion dollar network that would bring 39 new train stations to Sydney.
The project would include four new lines, including 17 new stations that reach the eastern suburbs, the north coast and western Sydney.
The map is made by Voommaps and predicts the new lines that run alongside the current trains – but commuters can wait up to four decades before the project is finished.
The proposed network (photo) would enable the development of 39 new train stations, including 17 in the eastern suburbs, North Shore and West Sydney.
The M1 line would see new stations in the city's CBD, including Barangaroo, Pitt Street and Marsden Park and Narellan in the west.
The M2 would offer commuters more efficient transportation from the southwest to the city and bypass the Olympic Park and Parramatta.
The second line would also connect passengers with Malabar in the east of the city, the cost of which is expected to be more than $ 6 billion, while construction is expected to start in early 2020.
The M3 and M4 lines will take a little longer and will offer direct services from North Sydney to the South – considerably shortening travel time.

Christopher Brown, president of the Western Sydney Leadership Dialogue, said the train connections would help people looking for work.
& # 39; Many jobs are in the more privileged parts of the city on the other side of the Parramatta River, & # 39 ;, said Brown. News.com.au.
& # 39; That is one of the reasons why we need a north-south rail link, making it easier for people living in Bankstown to find a job in Parramatta, Norwest or Ryde. & # 39;
The map is based on the future transportation strategy of the New South Wales government, which hopes to have built up the extensive train network in Sydney by 2056.
