Five Dock Station
Main site features
The project will deliver rail to this area for the first time, providing for a fast and direct trip to Sydney CBD. The new metro station will provide for an easy interchange with the local bus network along Great North Road. The metro station will be integrated into the area and will align with recommendations of the local council’s Five Dock Town Centre Urban Design Study, building on Five Dock as a vibrant and friendly village to live in, work and visit.
Five Dock Station will be located off Great North Road, between East Street and then at the corner of Second Avenue and Waterview Street.
Access and entry
There will be one station entrance at Fred Kelly Place, off Great North Road.
Station excavation and tunnelling
In July 2021, Sydney Metro awarded Acciona Construction Australia Pty Ltd and Ferrovial Construction (Australia) Pty Ltd Joint Venture the contract to deliver 11 kilometres of twin metro rail tunnels between Sydney Olympic Park and The Bays.
These works at Five Dock include:
- site establishment and demolition – installing hoarding, demolishing buildings, protecting and/or relocating utilities, transport network modifications, conducting investigations, installing staff facilities and services to the construction site, installing piles and initial excavation
- excavating the station shafts – to a depth of 30 metres (approximately 10 storeys)
- excavating a station cavern – using a roadheader and/or excavator with rock hammer attachments
- removing excavated material – via trucks through Great North Road.
