Waterloo Station

Waterloo Station is an underground station, about 25 metres below ground level, in the heart of the Waterloo precinct.

Main station features

The new metro station at Waterloo will revitalise the Waterloo precinct, and support the extension of the CBD.

The new station will take pressure off Redfern and Green Square stations, and provide a new fast, safe and reliable metro rail link to key employment areas in the Sydney central business district, North Sydney and Barangaroo.

It will contribute to the NSW Government’s objective to transform Waterloo and Redfern and will provide additional connectivity to the Australian Technology Park.

With high quality bus services along Botany Road, it will allow for further development and expansion of the Global Economic Corridor between Sydney CBD and Green Square.

  • New pedestrian crossings on Raglan and Cope streets
  • New taxi bays on Raglan Street
  • New bike parking within the precinct
  • New kiss and ride bays on Cope Street
  • Existing bus stops retained northbound along Botany Road

  • Enhancement of pedestrian infrastructure around the Metro Quarter including footpath widenings and through-site links.
