Closure of Newcastle rail stations not technically a closure of whole line, State Government lawyer says
THREE leading architects, landscape designers and artists will be commissioned by the State Government to devise ideas for the controversial Sydney Metro stations at Pyrmont and Rozelle.
Transport Minister David Campbell said the experts would be split into three teams and meet community representatives selected by Sydney Metro in consultation with community groups and councils to discuss ideas this month.
Each team would come up with a proposal for each station and those proposals would be unveiled at a National Trust breakfast in November and published online.
"Their designs and the public feedback will then be provided to the successful contractors who design, build and operate the metro,'' Mr Campbell said.
Each station will be built in a historic precinct, which has drawn the ire of heritage buffs and a green ban on the Pyrmont site, in Union Square, by the Construction, Forestry, Mining and Energy Union.
Mr Campbell said the environmental assessment for the metro's first stage - which found Pyrmont and Rozelle residents would suffer from excessive noise during construction - had ''generated some healthy debate in the architecture, planning and heritage communities about what sort of station building would add most to their locations''.
The Metro is expected to cost about $4.9 billion.
