The Sydney metro is live.

The first stage of the $7.3 billion northwest project opened Sunday May 26.

The massive project connecting the north-west to the rest of Sydney took its first passengers Sunday with massive crowds showing up.

It wasn’t a smooth opening.

The first ever Sydney Metro passenger services officially started their first trips between Tallawong and Chatswood around 1pm.

However, there were major technical issues, with doors morning closing properly on one services causing delays.

Thousands of people have turned up to try the new route. Many more than organisers had expected.

One rider said: “It’s already chaotic at Chatswood. Pretty sure Monday is going to be a funday🙂 Good luck people,  enjoy your ride to work tomorrow on the Sydney Metro.”

And it wasn’t good news for the Sydney Metro PR team, with people slamming the delays on Social media.

“There’s a 15-20 min service gap on the metro network due to a technical problem with doors on one train. Further information will be provided shortly,” Sydney metro said.
