The new Waterloo Station is coming to life.

Construction of the platforms, 25 metres underground, is nearing completion and individual levels are taking shape.

The roof of the underground station, which will form the street level, has also started.

Once complete, more than 97,500 tonnes of concrete and 10,500 tonnes of steel would have been used to form the structures within the station.

State Significant Development Approval has been received for the over station development – John Holland and Mirvac will now start construction of the Waterloo Metro Quarter, a mixed-use space with commercial office space, retail, residential, social and affordable housing and student accommodation.
