North Ryde railway station is located on the Chatswood to Epping line, serving the Sydney suburb of North Ryde. It is served by Sydney Trains T1 Northern services.

History[edit]

North Ryde station opened on 23 February 2009 on the same date as the Chatswood to Epping line.[1][2] It was built on the site of Network Ten's former television studios now occupied by apartments, now named Ryde Gardens. It serves the nearby Lachlan's Line town centre.

The original, proposed name of the station was Delhi Road after the adjacent street. On 12 June 2006, North Ryde Railway Station was submitted to the Geographical Names Board of New South Wales as the provisional official name of the station.[3]

In 2018, North Ryde station will close for six months for conversion to a Sydney Metro station on the Sydney Metro Northwest line, which will include the installation of platform screen doors.[4]
