Five massive roof canopies have been installed at Sydenham Station in a major construction operation.


The canopies, each weighing more than 20 tonnes, are part of a new pedestrian concourse that will transform the station, which is being upgraded as part of Sydney Metro.

More than 400 people worked 24-7 over two weeks to deliver the work.

The new pedestrian concourse will connect the two new plaza entrances to the station on Railway Parade and Burrows Avenue.

A 500 tonne crane installed roof canopies, which were built during a road closure on Burrows Avenue as they were too large to be transported by truck.

Other work at Sydenham included:

  • More than 3km of new overhead wiring installed as part of the remodelling of Sydenham Junction;
  • 50km of new signal cabling installed; and
  • 6,000 tonnes of new  track ballast was brought into the site.

Platforms 1 and 2 are now closed so they can be upgraded to Sydney Metro platforms, including the installation of platform screen door technology.

Customers on the T3 Bankstown Line will use platforms 3 and 4 at Sydenham until Sydney Metro opens in 2024.
