Compulsory Land Acquisition & the North West Rail Link
15 January 2014
In late 2012 the NSW Government commenced construction on the North West Rail Link (NWRL) a priority rail infrastructure for North Western Sydney. The rail link shall commence at the existing station of Epping with eight new railway stations proposed at: Cherrybrook, Castle Hill, Showground, Norwest, Bella Vista, Kellyville, Rouse Hill and Cudgegong Road1.
You may own a property in or around the proposed route of the NWRL and your property may be required for its construction. If so, Transport for NSW may acquire (purchase) your property for that purpose.
Should you have been contacted by Transport for NSW for this purpose we suggest you read the following link http://northwestrail.com.au/document/show/52 which gives an overview of the process. You should then arrange to attend our office for advice.
All reasonable costs associated with the purchase of your property are usually borne by Transport of NSW.
Mersal & Associates specialise in property acquisition matters. If Transport for NSW is seeking to acquire your property we can ensure you achieve a fair price. Call us today to arrange an appointment.
