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.

The station includes:

  • New pedestrian crossings on Raglan, Wellington and Cope streets
  • New bike parking within the precinct
  • New taxi and kiss and ride bays on Cope Street
  • Existing bus stops retained northbound along Botany Road
  • Relocation of the bus stop southbound on Botany Road closer to Raglan Street
  • Relocation of the bus stops on Cope and Wellington streets to Raglan Street
  • Enhancement of pedestrian infrastructure around the Waterloo Metro Quarter including footpath widenings and through-site links.
