The South West Rail Link is a planned expansion of the commuter rail network in Sydney, Australia. The project is being managed by the Transport Infrastructure Development Corporation, an agency of the Government of New South Wales. The project used to be part of the Metropolitan Rail Expansion Program, which originally included the North West Rail Link, the South West Rail Link and the CBD rail link. This project has since been replaced by the SydneyLink project in 2008 after the announcement of the North West Metro, the cancellation of the CBD Rail Link, and the possibility of two additional metro lines under investigation.

The South West Rail Link is designed to cater to the "South West Growth Centre". It will consist of a 12-kilometre, twin-track railway running from Leppington and Edmondson Park to connect with the South line at Glenfield. The project also includes a train stabling facility to the west of the new Leppington station.
