Sydney Metro stations announced
16 November, 2015
The locations of Sydney’s new world-class metro railway stations have today been confirmed, along with news that the first tunnel boring machine will be in the ground before the end of 2018 on Stage 2 of Sydney Metro.
Sydney Metro will help boost capacity of the rail network by 100,000 people every hour, and deliver ‘turn up and go’ rail services with more than 65 kilometres of new metro rail on a standalone line.
Stage 2 of Sydney Metro will involve twin tunnels stretching the entire 15 kilometres from Chatswood to Sydenham and proposed new stations at:
- Crows Nest located on the western fringe of Crows Nest village with access to the station via the corner of Clarke Street and Hume Street, and the corner of Pacific Highway and Oxley Street;
- Victoria Cross located in the northern section of North Sydney’s CBD. Access to the station would be via the eastern side of Miller Street between Berry Street and Mount Street;
- Barangaroo station will combine Sydney’s world-class metro rail system with the city’s new global business hub. It will be located at Barangaroo Central;
- Martin Place will be integrated with the existing suburban station underground between Castlereagh and Elizabeth streets. It will include a world-class subterranean rail interchange which means customers won’t need to go to the surface to change trains; and
- Pitt Street metro station will be located below Pitt and Castlereagh streets and north of Park St, servicing the southern CBD and the George St and Pitt St retail precincts.
- An underground station at Central linking to existing intercity and suburban rail services.
The NSW Government is conducting ongoing investigations into a proposed metro station at either Waterloo or Sydney University.
Construction of Stage 1 of Sydney Metro – the $8.3 billion Sydney Metro Northwest – is more than half-complete and due to start passenger services in 2019. Sydney Metro City & Southwest is expected to open in 2024.
The community will have the opportunity to give further feedback as part of the environmental planning assessment process towards the middle of 2016.
