Sydney Metro works at Central
Sydney Metro is
Australia’s largest public transport project, delivering more trains and faster
services for customers across the entire city. It will transform the way people
commute, with a train every four minutes in the peak, fully air-conditioned
services and lift access at all stations.
Underground metro platforms at Central
The metro platforms at Central will provide a critical interchange, connecting customers with suburban, intercity and regional rail services, as well as buses, coaches and light rail.
They will be located below platforms 13, 14 and 15, and will be delivered as part of the major contract to build the twin tunnels between Chatswood and Sydenham.
The NSW Government will build Central Walk – a new underground pedestrian concourse at Central Station making it easier for customers to get around Sydney’s busiest railway station.
This is the first step in the station’s revitalisation, delivering a new underground concourse to better connect customers to trains, buses, light rail and the new Sydney Metro.
Main features include:
· 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
· Boosting capacity at Central to cater for the expected 66 per cent increase in daily customer demand
Central Walk will be delivered at the same time as the new Sydney Metro platforms with construction to start in 2018.
Sydney Yard Access Bridge
Construction is underway on the Sydney Yard Access Bridge, which will provide maintenance vehicle access to Sydney Trains and Sydney Metro once the project is operational. Laing O’Rourke has been awarded the contract for the design and construction of the bridge, which will be around 170 metres long and 50 metres wide, crossing over the Intercity rail lines to Sydney Yard.
