Sydney Metro USDTS Stations – Barangaroo Station
Following on from the development of the business case Architectus and Foster + Partners have been engaged by Sydney Metro as part of the METRON Consortium combining Arcadis, Mott MacDonald, Foster + Partners and Architectus. A new standalone railway, this 21st century network will deliver more than 65 km of new metro rail revolutionising the way Sydney travels.
Architectus and Foster + Partners have been engaged to design the 5 central North Sydney and CBD stations that integrate significant urban station locations such Crows Nest Station, Victoria Cross Station (North Sydney), Barangaroo Station, Pitt Street Station and Waterloo Station. System facilities at Chatswood and Artarmon, and stabling, maintenance and services facilities at Sydenham were also designed. In addition, 11 stations between Sydenham and Bankstown will be upgraded and converted to metro standards.
Barangaroo Station is an underground station at approx. 25 metres below ground level, and is located beneath the northern end of Hickson Road, south of Munn Street in Millers Point.
The station improves access to the Walsh Bay Arts and Culture precinct as well as providing easy access to Barangaroo’s public, residential, commercial and entertainment areas and the new ferry hub. It services the residential areas at Millers Point, Walsh Bay and future residents of Barangaroo, providing high quality public transport access to the latest destination in Sydney.
