Underground stations reach the surface


Sydney’s three new underground metro railway stations in the city’s north west have been “topped off”, with work rising to ground level from 25 metres deep underground.


Work at the new Hills Showground, Norwest and Castle Hill stations has reached ground level – having started from 25 metres below the surface.

This is the equivalent of an eight-storey building underground.

Nearly 25,000 tonnes of concrete and 1200 tonnes of reinforced steel was used to deliver the new metro platforms and station concourse area at Hills Showground.

Work is also continuing on the new commuter car park, which will have 600 spaces. The next step is the installation of the iconic station canopy, its design inspired by the local blue gum leaf.
