Wynyard Walk is a new pedestrian link connecting Wynyard Station with Barangaroo. The fully accessible walkway allows pedestrians to get from Wynyard to the Barangaroo waterfront in approximately six minutes, avoiding steep inclines and road crossings. It opened in mid-September 2016.
WHAT WE ARE DOING
Opened in September, Wynyard Walk is fully accessible, with escalators and lifts between Wynyard Station Exit 4 and the tunnel level, and between the tunnel and exits to Sussex and Kent Streets. The Barangaroo entrance to the tunnel is located at Napoleon Plaza, on the corner of Napoleon, Kent and Margaret streets. The Clarence Street entrance, providing an accessible entrance into Wynyard Station, Wynyard Walk tunnel and Kent Street tunnel, opened in December 2016.
