Sydney’s Newest Metro Stations Announced

The Sydney Metro West project has announced two new stations – one at Pyrmont and another at Hunter Street in Sydney’s central business district (CBD).

The Hunter Street Station will have entrances on the corner of Hunter and George streets, and Bligh and O’Connell streets, connecting customers to suburban rail lines as well as light rail. It is strategically located in the heart of Sydney, allowing commuters to easily connect to Sydney Trains at Wynyard and Martin Place, and Sydney Metro at Martin Place.

The Pyrmont Station will be located between Pyrmont Bridge Road and Union Street, providing easy access to Pyrmont Bridge.

Sydney Metro West connects the major commercial suburb of Parramatta to the CBD in around 20 minutes and will double rail capacity between the two when completed.

Other benefits will include:

  • A 27 minute journey from Bondi Junction to the new metro station at Sydney Olympic Park, compared with 56 minutes now
  • A 12 minute reduction from Burwood North to North Sydney
  • A reduction of 32 minutes a day from Castle Hill to Pyrmont
  • A 14 minute reduction from Blacktown to Sydney Olympic Park

Sydney Metro is liaising with the impacted owners and tenants of 11 commercial buildings in the CBD and another two commercial buildings in Pyrmont. The first major tunnelling contract for the Sydney Metro West project is expected to be awarded in the middle of this year, with tunnel boring machines to be in the ground by the end of 2022.

Pyrmont and Hunter Street join the station locations at Westmead, Parramatta, Sydney Olympic Park, North Strathfield, Burwood North, Five Dock and The Bays, which have already been confirmed.
