All platform screen doors on city stations now compete
All platform screen doors have now been installed across the new city stations as part of the Sydney Metro City & Southwest project, with 288 doors stretching 2.7 kilometres over the eight stations.
Work to install the doors commenced in January 2022, with 170 metres of doors lining each platform at Crows Nest, Victoria Cross, Barangaroo, Martin Place, Pitt Street, Central, Waterloo and Sydenham.
The installation of the doors took over 36,700 hours with an average of 35 workers working on the doors across the city stations each day.
Each door weights 175 kilograms and reaches around 2.5 metres to create a complete barrier between the platform and the track.
The doors will help increase safety by creating a barrier between the platforms and tracks, allows customer to move along the platforms more efficiently and improve travel efficiency by allowing trains to get in and out of the station much faster.
Now that installation is complete, a vigorous testing and commissioning program will commence before they are put into operation ready for metro services to start in 2024.
