Construction underway to deliver the future Central Walk
26 April, 2019
Changes to suburban platforms 16 to 23 are in progress to facilitate work to build the Central Walk - a new underground concourse at Central Station that will better connect passengers to trains, light rail and the new Sydney Metro underground platforms.
New stairs are now open to customers using platforms 20 - 21 and 22 - 23 to ensure they can continue accessing the Suburban Tunnel, through to the Grand Concourse, while Central Walk is being constructed.
With these stairs now complete, further work is continuing on platforms 16 to 23 to relocate and build Customer Service Attendant rooms for staff, supporting future works for Central Walk.
Work will be staged across the different platforms. Hoarding will be installed to minimise impacts for customers on the platform and to ensure work is completed safely.
Central Walk includes:
- A 19-metre-wide tunnel from Chalmers Street linking to new Sydney Metro platforms under Central
- Escalators directly to suburban platforms (Platforms 16 to 23) for the first time.
Central Walk will help boost capacity at Central to cater for the expected 66 per cent increase in daily customer demand.
More than 270,000 people use Central every day with that number expected to rise to 450,000 in the next two decades.
