A new metro station in Hunter Street aims to cater to growing demand and supplement the capacity of existing CBD metro and heavy rail stations.
The new Hunter Street Station will be accessible from George, Bligh and O’Connell Streets in the Sydney CBD. The station will also provide connections with heavy rail services at Wynyard Station and the Sydney Metro – City and Southwest Line at Martin Place Station.
Along with Parramatta, Sydney Olympic Park,The Bays, and Pyrmont stations on the proposed Sydney Metro West line, the Hunter Street metro station will be delivered as an Integrated Station Development (ISD). The overstation development will include commercial, retail and residential space.
