Punchbowl Station

About Punchbowl Station

Customers at Punchbowl Station will have a new air-conditioned metro train every four minutes in the peak – that’s 15 trains an hour. Punchbowl Station is currently serviced by eight trains an hour in the morning peak.

The station will be upgraded with new lifts for the first time, level access between the platforms and trains, and platform screen doors to keep people and objects away from the tracks.

Planning and compliance

Sydney Metro received planning approval on 19 December 2018 to upgrade the T3 Bankstown Line between Sydenham and Bankstown to metro standards.

The Submissions and Preferred Infrastructure Report for the Sydenham to Bankstown Metro upgrade was on exhibition until 18 July 2018.

A Station Design and Precinct Plan (SDPP) has been finalised for Punchbowl Station that shows how the new station design has developed and how it will integrate with the surrounding precinct. The summary document details key improvements.

Downer EDI Works Pty Ltd has been awarded the contract to upgrade Dulwich Hill, Campsie, Punchbowl, Hurlstone Park, Belmore and Wiley Park stations on the more than 125-year-old T3 Bankstown Line to metro rail standards.

For more information see City & Southwest planning and compliance documentation or Dulwich Hill, Campsie, Punchbowl, Hurlstone Park, Belmore and Wiley Park stationsto find out more about our major contractors involved in the project.
