3:50 PM Exploring the Long Terms Benefits of Adding a Metro System to Sydney's Central Station to Cope with Increasing Passenger Demand

Laing O’ Rourke was recently awarded the contract to transform Sydney’s Central Station. This $955 million project will see Sydney Central become the gateway for the metro network and allow it to cope with a 55% increase in transport demand by 2038. This session will explore:

  • Strategies to minimise disruption for the commuter during the construction phase of this metro station and ensure the Central can be kept running throughout
  • Exploring the challenges of constructing the tunnel that is 27m below the existing platform level
  • How street level will be accessible through the Central Walk- a 19 meter wide tunnel from Chalmers Street
