About Central Walk
Central Walk is a new underground concourse at Central Station that will better connect passengers to trains, light rail and the new Sydney Metro underground platforms.
Central Walk includes:
- A 19-metre wide tunnel from Chalmers Street linking to new Sydney Metro platforms under Central
- New, easy access points to Sydney Trains platforms 16 to 23
- Escalators directly to suburban platforms for the first time.
The entry at 20-28 Chalmers Street will provide direct access to Central Station for customers from the Surry Hills catchment area and a direct interchange for passengers from the CBD and South East Light Rail.
Central Walk will help boost capacity at Central to cater for the expected 66 per cent increase in daily customer demand. More than 270,000 people use Central every day with that number expected to rise to 450,000 in the next two decades.
Construction is expected to start in 2018.
