Sydney Metro invites organisations that wish to participate in the Hunter Street Station and Precinct PDP (Interested Parties) to attend an online Industry Briefing and register their interest for the Metro West – Hunter Street Station and Precinct PDP.
Sydney Metro is Australia’s biggest public transport program Services on this new stand-alone metro railway system began on the Metro North West Line between Rouse Hill and Chatswood in May 2019.
By 2024, Sydney will have 31 metro stations and more than 66 kilometres of new metro rail, revolutionising the way Australia’s biggest city travels. Metro means a new generation of world-class fast, safe and reliable trains easily connecting customers to where they want to go. Customers don’t need timetables – they just turn up and go.
Metro West is a new 24-kilometre metro line that would connect Greater Parramatta with the Sydney CBD. Stations have been confirmed at Westmead, Parramatta, Sydney Olympic Park, North Strathfield, Burwood North, Five Dock, The Bays, Pyrmont and Hunter Street (Sydney CBD).
This infrastructure project will double the rail capacity between Greater Parramatta and the Sydney CBD with a travel time target between the two centres of about 20 minutes.
The Hunter Street Station will be located at the northern edge of Sydney's central business district and provides access to a major employment area, and Sydney's premier tourist destination around the harbour. The Station will provide an integrated transport hub linking three stations connecting Wynyard to Martin Place through underground links and providing an interchange between heavy rail, metro, light rail and buses.
Additional information is available on the Sydney Metro website at www.sydneymetro.info.
