Martin Place Station

Martin Place Station is an underground station, about 25 (north end) and 27 (south end) metres below ground level, located in the heart of Sydney’s CBD.

Main station features

The station is integrated with the existing Martin Place Station and serves Sydney’s high-end commercial and financial district, the Macquarie Street precinct and the Pitt Street retail zone.

The new Martin Place Station will have two station entrances: a northern entrance opening to Castlereagh, Hunter and Elizabeth streets, and a southern entrance opening to Martin Place, Castlereagh and Elizabeth streets. Pedestrian connections will also link the new metro station with the existing T4 Eastern Suburbs & Illawarra Line, and nearby bus services. A covered walkway will be provided from Martin Place to Hunter Street.

Public domain improvements, new shops, services, retail and dining will transform the station into a destination for Sydney siders and visitors.

  • Wayfinding signage and Sydney Metro information.

Station construction

Construction at Martin Place is split across three sites: Bligh Street tunnelling support site, and Martin Place North and South sites.

Construction includes building an underground platform-to-platform connection between the existing Martin Place Station and the Sydney Metro Martin Place Station. This is mainly to be built by excavating new pedestrian tunnels from the Sydney Metro construction site.
