Blues Point temporary tunnel access site

About the site

A temporary retrieval site was required for the removal of the tunnel boring machine (TBM) cutterheads and shields at Henry Lawson Reserve. The site was then used as an access point for tunnel fit-out activity between the new Sydney Metro Barangaroo and Victoria Cross stations.

Tunnel fit out was completed in late 2021 and the acoustic shed was removed. The shaft has since been backfilled and turf relaid in Henry Lawson Reserve.

Further enhancement work will take place at the site throughout 2022, including landscaping, heritage interpretation and a new shared zone on Blues Point Road.

Main site features

Construction activities include:

  • reinstatement of Henry Lawson Reserve
  • staged completion of enhancement activities in small areas of the reserve, including Blues Point Road.


The temporary site is located at Henry Lawson Reserve, McMahons Point, with access via Blues Point Road (left-in and left-out).
