"I think this is great. Wynyard is a good example of how old stations can be transformed into functional accessible ones. Looks like Central will be as good, if not better."

via Facebook

"A world class look"

"Much needed upgrade ... looks brilliant!"

"Looks magnificent, and it'll be worth the wait in the end. The construction of this metro railway, and the rejuvenation of Central station, is the best thing that's happened here in decades. With every infrastructure project will of course come criticism, but that's inevitable. Regardless however, I hope the team at Metro stands firm with what they aim to achieve - to deliver a transport system that will be beneficial for Sydney for decades to come."

"Yes! Can't wait for this to kick off. The stations will look amazing when it's all finished (plus having lifts will be great!). And changing between Light Rail and Metro more easily at Dulwich Hill will be a bonus :)"
