Northwest Metro: New driverless trains pass peak hour test

The Northwest Metro has passed its first big test and survived the peak hour commute without any major hurdles.

The much-anticipated train line, which runs from Rouse Hill to Chatswood, opened its doors for the first time on Sunday.

Transport Minister Andrew Constance tells Ben Fordham that although there were some minor teething issues, such as trains overshooting platforms, things went well overall.

“We’re ecstatic. To get a mega project open in NSW… is just huge for everyone.

“The great news about today is it worked well.”
