Central Station Renewal – Central Walk

Central Station, constructed over a century ago, is about to be modernised. The current design for the station was done by Colonial Architect Walter Liberty Vernan and will soon be refurbished with the new Central Walk design created by Woods Bagot, responsible for Wynyard Walk, and John McAslant & Partners.

 

The work was awarded to Laing O’Rourke earlier this month. The project is worth $955 million, due to be completed in 2022, followed closely by the delivery of Sydney Metro in 2024. Central Walk is designed to connect Central Station directly to the future Sydney Light Rail stops and Sydney Metro Platforms. Technical and Heritage studies will also be conducted to protect the heritage of the 111-year-old site.

 

Laing O’Rourke has already begun works to align with the building of the Sydney Metro. These works include:

 

  • New underground concourse, Concourse East, with entry to the station via Chalmer St, Surry Hills
  • Construction of 19m wide tunnel from Chalmers St to link to the new Metro platforms
  • New access to suburban platforms 16 to 23 via direct escalator access
  • Dig out of platforms 13, 14 and 15 for new Metro Stations

 

The Sydney Yard Access Bridge is also underway, also being constructed by Laing O’Rourke. This new bridge will allow access for heavy vehicles and operation maintenance to facilitate construction for both Sydney Metro and Central Walk.
