Sydney Metro Northwest is a current project by the Government of New South Wales for a rapid transit link to the north-western suburbs of Sydney, Australia. Presently under construction, the Northwest Metro is being managed by Transport for New South Wales and is proposed to connect Rouse Hill to Chatswood via Castle Hill and Epping.

Prior to June 2015, the project was known as the North West Rail Link (NWRL). Originally, North West Rail Link was meant to cover the section between Epping and Rouse Hill. By June 2015, the "North West Rail Link" covered the route of the original NWRL and the Epping to Chatswood railway line between Epping and Chatswood, which will be converted to rapid transit standards. In June 2015, it was announced that the entire project would be renamed the Sydney Metro Northwest, the first stage of the forthcoming Sydney Metro system.
