The Crows Nest community have been given a first glimpse at their future commute during the Crows Nest Station Community Open Day.

More than 9,500 locals visited the state-of-the-art metro station, which will open this year as part of the Sydney Metro City & Southwest project.  

The community day provided locals with the chance to explore key features of the station, including 42 platform screen doors, nine escalators and five lifts throughout the fully accessible station.  

Visitors also got the chance to see the geometric art installation now adorning the two station entrances on Pacific Highway and Clarke Street. Designed by artist Esther Stewart the colourful artwork references the heritage of the Crows Nest area and the building elements in handmade coloured glazed tiles.   

The station is mostly complete, with precinct work continuing, including footpath and intersection upgrade work, utility works within the road and footpath and cycle lane upgrade work. 

It has taken three years and a construction team of more than 5,300 people to construct and deliver Crows Nest Station. 

When operational, around 10,100 passengers are expected to pass through the station during the morning peak period. 

When metro services start this year, this key part of the city’s north will be unlocked with fast travel times from Crows Nest under the Harbour to Barangaroo in five minutes and to Martin Place in just seven minutes.
