New metro model for Sydney

Sydney Metro’s Hunter Street Station development will be delivered under a first-of-its-kind model for an Australian public transport infrastructure project.

The NSW Government has announced that the Hunter Street Precinct Development Partner Model presents new opportunities for industry, business and the community.

Hunter Street Station will revitalise Sydney’s northern CBD and become a gateway to jobs, business and tourism and a catalyst for economic recovery.

As one of the jewels in the crown of the city-shaping Sydney Metro West project, economic, community and placemaking outcomes will be put at the forefront of the new station’s design and delivery.

Bidders for the new Hunter Street metro station will have to show how they will improve the local area and create a precinct and a sense of place, not just a station.

It will take customers around 20 minutes to get from Parramatta to Hunter Street on this once-in-a-century rail infrastructure project and they’ll be getting off the train to an integrated, world-class transport hub which will transform this part of the CBD.

The NSW Government has launched an industry engagement process to deliver the new Hunter Street Station and the world-class jobs, economic and tourism precinct around this new Sydney CBD metro station.

Key industry players have been briefed about the potential for re-shaping the area through the Hunter Street Precinct Development Partner Model. Sydney Metro is calling for their ideas and input into creating a world-class transport hub.

The station will provide an integrated transport hub connecting Wynyard to Martin Place through underground links and providing an interchange between Sydney Trains, Sydney Metro, light rail and buses.

Sydney Metro will work with landowners, developers and integrators to deliver the best outcome, including the underground station, the buildings and spaces above it.
