First look at proposed new Hunter Street Station entrances
The proposed design of two new entrances to the future Sydney Metro Hunter Street Station have been revealed, as planning progresses for this landmark station in the heart of the Sydney CBD.
The two entrances, accessible from George, Hunter, O’Connell and Bligh streets have been developed in consultation with the City of Sydney.
The new Hunter Street Station will be the heart of Sydney’s central business district and become a transport hub with connections to George Street, light rail, train services at Wynyard and the Sydney Metro City & Southwest station at Martin Place.
The planning proposal also considers future over station development to be integrated with the new station, with two new buildings being proposed above the station.
Up to 150,000 square metres of high-quality commercial office space will be delivered, benefitting from direct access to fast and frequent Sydney Metro West services along with underground walkways connecting from Martin Place to Barangaroo.
Aboveground, there will be an extension of the plaza at the eastern station entry, adjacent to Richard Johnson Square, and pedestrian links that prioritise movement through the station precinct.
The planning proposal will be open for public comment later this year.
Construction started on Sydney Metro West in 2020, with the project on track to be completed by 2030. In 2030, Sydney will have a network of four metro lines, 46 stations and 113 kilometres of new metro rail.
