Museum Station facelift complete
30 September, 2016
The last of the CBD train stations has been made accessible with the completion of a $46 million upgrade of Museum Station.
The important upgrade will improve access for customers now and for many years to come while ensuring the heritage significance of the station has been preserved.
Three new lifts have been delivered as part of the work to ensure that all customers, including those with disabilities, limited mobility, parents with prams and tourists with luggage can now easily access one of Sydney’s busiest stations.
Key features delivered as part of the work included:
- A new lift connecting the entry of the station on the corner of Elizabeth and Liverpool streets and the underground station concourse.
- Two new lifts connecting the station concourse with the platforms.
- An accessible ramp at the station entrance.
- A new family accessible toilet.
- Refurbishment of the toilets within the concourse.
The project was delivered as part of the NSW Government’s Transport Access Program delivering accessible, modern, secure and integrated transport infrastructure to customers.
Museum Station is one of Australia’s first underground stations. Around 21,000 people move through the station each day.
As part of the upgrade the popular Hyde Park South Café building was demolished and will be rebuilt by City of Sydney Council now that the upgrade is complete.
