Sydney Metro Central Station update
17 April, 2019

Major construction work has started to deliver the biggest upgrade to Central Station in decades, with work on the underground metro well underway around former platforms 13 to 15.

Piling and major excavation is in progress, which will be closely followed by the construction of a traffic deck. This traffic deck will allow construction vehicles and machinery to safely access the site while excavation continues up to 27 metres underground.

Work is also underway to upgrade the northern concourse with transformed pedestrian thoroughfares and a feature roof.

The Northern Concourse upgrade will transform the existing pedestrian thoroughfares by installing new escalators to the reinstated Platforms 12 to 14 and creating new transport interchanges and entrances from Eddy Avenue, the Grand Concourse and intercity and regional train services.

During construction, work will ensure ongoing access for customers, with temporary routes created between platforms and concourses.

Platforms 9 to 11 are being extended at the southern end, which will allow space at the northern end for the upgraded concourse.

Sydney Metro is Australia’s biggest public transport project. Services start in 2019 in the city’s North West with a train every four minutes in the peak.

Metro rail will be extended into the CBD and beyond to Bankstown in 2024. There will be new CBD metro railway stations at Martin Place, Pitt Street and Barangaroo and new underground metro platforms at Central.
