Closure of Newcastle rail stations not technically a closure of whole line, State Government lawyer says
Sydney Metro has released a concept design of a new station on the Sydenham to Bankstown corridor and the design of a new station in North Sydney has been approved by the NSW Department of Planning, Industry and Environment (DPIE).
The two stations highlight the place-making approach of Sydney Metro in the construction of new stations and precincts along with the rail infrastructure.
In North Sydney, Lendlease will build the Victoria Cross station as well as retail spaces and public domain improvements and construction is expected to begin in 2021.
In addition to the station itself, the surrounding precinct will be energised with a new pedestrian laneway and outdoor spaces. The laws will be designed to accommodate pop-up events such as markets or food trucks
A three-storey retail, dining, and entertainment building will be constructed on Miller Street. The development is hoped to turn Miller Street into a civic boulevard at the heart of the North Sydney CBD.
Transport improvements include ‘kiss and ride’ bays, bus interchange areas, and public bike parking facilities.
In Campsie, the new concept design opens up the station’s entrance and includes a partial open-air plaza on Beamish St. The new station design is hoped to ease pedestrian congestion between the station and Lilian Lane.
Seating and bicycle parking at the station will be improved, while accessibility upgrades will ensure the station is useable by those with all abilities.
Community feedback is being sought ahead of approval by the DPIE with construction expected to begin in 2021.
