Reimagining Central Station

The NSW Government is transforming Sydney and investing in projects to improve public transport to, from and within Sydney’s CBD.

The Government is now planning for a quantum leap in demand for Central’s role as a major rail interchange between the new Sydney Metro, new CBD and South East Light Rail, and existing suburban, intercity and interstate train services.

A key project in catering for this increased demand is Central Walk - a brand new underground concourse that will better connect passengers to trains, buses, light rail and the new Sydney Metro.

It’s also the first step in the revitalisation of the station precinct, and includes:

  • A 19-metre wide tunnel from Chalmers Street, linking to new metro platforms under Central
  • New, easy access points to Sydney Trains platforms 16 to 23
  • Escalators directly to suburban platforms for the first time.

Central Walk will be delivered at the same time as the new Sydney Metro platforms. For more information on Sydney Metro visit the project website at sydneymetro.info.

We have an opportunity to reimagine Central Station, ensuring that the investment in new transport infrastructure reflects what you want for our grand landmark, recognising its iconic place in Sydney’s history and future.

You can read the ideas of the many participants in our two month engagement program held in 2016.

  • Building on Central Station's Heritage

    Since 1855 and the opening of the first passenger rail line in NSW, Central has been part of Sydney’s story. The station has found a special place in the heart of all NSW residents, evolving and growing with the city it serves. Our challenge is to make sure the station’s heritage is reflected in an exciting future.

    Many cities across the world have revitalised heritage rail stations in to modern transport hubs, providing lessons that could be applicable to the reimagining of Central Station.
