New footbridge opens at Dulwich Hill Station
A brand-new overbridge and stairs have opened at Dulwich Hill Station as upgrades continue to be completed along the T3 Bankstown line as part of the conversion to Sydney Metro.
The new 45-metre-long bridge connects Dulwich Hill Station to Dulwich Hill light rail station, providing direct, quick, and easy access for commuters who need to interchange services.
This upgrade means commuters no longer need to travel around the perimeter of the train station, slashing the time to connect between the two transport modes in half.
Previously Dulwich Hill Station had only one entrance via Wardell Road, with the new bridge adding two entrances on Bedford Crescent and Ewart Lane, giving the local community more access options.
From next month, Dulwich Hill commuters will also benefit from two new lifts from the footbridge becoming operational, which will make the station fully accessible for the first time.
In the coming months, work at the station will begin on the installation of the mechanical gap filler technology which will bridge the gap between the train and platforms to allow level access to metro trains for all commuters.
When the Bankstown to Sydenham section of the Sydney Metro City & Southwest opens in 2025, Dulwich Hill Station will have modern, fast, and reliable metro services to Central Station in 12 minutes and to Chatswood in 27 minutes, with interchange no longer required to reach stations in Sydney’s north.
Some stations on the T3 Bankstown Line currently only receive one train every 15 minutes in the peak. When metro services commence, these stations will receive a train every four minutes.
