Major Contract

Sydney Metro – West – Sydney CBD Station

PROJECT STATUS
Announced
Sydney Metro – West – Sydney CBD Station

A new metro station in the CBD aims to cater to growing demand and supplement the capacity of existing CBD metro and heavy rail stations. The station would enable a new mass transit option to Parramatta via the Sydney Metro West Line, and the growing suburbs along the corridor joining two major centres. 

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 and The Bays stations on the proposed Sydney Metro West line, the Sydney CBD metro station will be delivered as an Integrated Station Development (ISD). The overstation development will include commercial, retail and residential space.
