Full project details

The NSW Government awarded the Central Station Metro $955 million contract to Laing O’Rourke to deliver the new Sydney Metro platforms under Central Station. 

The NSW Government awarded the Central Station Metro $955 million contract to Laing O’Rourke to deliver the new Sydney Metro platforms under Central Station as well as the landmark Central Walk - a new underground pedestrian concourse to help customers get around Sydney’s busiest railway station.

It involves: 
  • The excavation and construction of the new underground Sydney Metro platforms at Central beneath former platforms 13, 14 and 15.
  • Construction of Central Walk - a new 19-metre wide underground concourse from Chalmers Street in Surry Hills, connecting customers to suburban rail platforms, Sydney Metro platforms, light rail and buses. 

For the first time, customers will be able to use escalators and new lifts to get to Platforms 12 to 23.

Completion of the Central Walk and Central Station Metro upgrade contract is are expected in 2022, with Central Walk open to customers. 

Once complete in 2022, work will continue along the 30km length of the Sydney Metro City & Southwest project to lay tracks and fit out stations before services start in 2024.

This is the first step in the renewal of Central Station, bringing new entrances and simpler interchanges that will make life easier for customers.

Sydney Metro is Australia’s biggest public transport project – 31 stations and 66km of new metro rail. The $8.3 billion Sydney Metro Northwest – opened in May 2019.
