Station Design and Precinct Plan

A draft Station Design and Precinct Plan (SDPP) has been prepared for Pitt Street Station that shows how the new station design has developed and how it will integrate with the surrounding precinct. 

You are encouraged to provide feedback on the Pitt Street Station draft SDPP between Tuesday 6 October and Tuesday 3 November 2020. To view a copy of the draft SDPP, and for more information please click here.  The key improvements are summarised here.

Station construction

Construction at the station is split across two station sites.

Work at the station includes:

  • Excavating shafts within both sites to provide the future station entry and vertical access, with a temporary street-level working platform over the excavation in the south shaft.
  • Excavating the station caverns and other underground pedestrian connections from the north shaft using roadheaders.
