In the commercial heart of the Sydney CBD, Hunter Street Station will become a new hub with easy connections to George Street, Light Rail, Sydney Trains services at Wynyard and Martin Place and the new Sydney Metro City & Southwest station at Martin Place.
A large vibrant precinct between George, Hunter, O’Connell and Bligh streets will prioritise pedestrians and support a vibrant public domain in the heart of the Sydney CBD.
Hunter Street Station would be in the city’s commercial core, on the corner of Hunter and George streets and Bligh and O’Connell streets.
Access and entry
Station entrances are proposed to be located on Bligh, O’Connell and George streets.
Planning and compliance
The Department of Planning and Environment granted approval for the Sydney Metro West Project Concept between Westmead and the Sydney CBD and station excavation and tunnelling between Westmead and The Bays in March 2021.
Station excavation and tunnelling
The Department of Planning and Environment granted approval for the station excavation and tunnelling between The Bays and Sydney CBD in September 2022.
A Modification Report to the planning approval for station excavation and tunnelling between The Bays and Sydney CBD was on public exhibition in February 2023. The modification proposed to allow for tunnelling to be undertaken 24 hours a day, 7 days a week by road headers and other methods, in addition to tunnel boring machines. This would be consistent with all recent tunnelling projects in Sydney, including other stages of Sydney Metro West. The modification was approved in April 2023.
John Holland Pty Ltd, CPB Contractors Pty Ltd (CPB) & Ghella Pty Ltd joint venture (JCG JV) was awarded the contract for station excavation and tunnelling between The Bays and Sydney CBD.
