Closure of Newcastle rail stations not technically a closure of whole line, State Government lawyer says
Major construction work is well underway at Central Station to deliver Sydney Metro, including the new Central Walk.
Work to build the 27-metre deep metro station box is now 10 metres beneath the surface. About 6,000 tonnes of crushed rock is being excavated from the box every week.
An 80-metre long, six-metre wide construction tunnel has also been built under Central Station to deliver Central Walk.
The tunnel runs parallel to Central Walk and allows excavated crushed rock to be removed without impacting trains and customers.
The construction tunnel has broken into Central’s ghost platforms, which were built last century as part of the Eastern Suburbs Railway line for Bondi and the Illawarra but never completed.
Platforms 26 and 27 have sat unused since, but they will now house 17 new communications and power rooms to support the new Sydney Metro at Central.
As part of the biggest upgrade to Sydney’s busiest railway station in decades, two new underground metro platforms are being built as well as the landmark Central Walk underground concourse, which will make it easier for customers to connect between light rail, suburban and inter-city trains, the new Sydney Metro and buses.
Central Walk is expected to be open to customers in 2022 while Sydney Metro construction continues – with metro rail services extending from Chatswood through the city and beyond to Bankstown in 2024.
