Final section of Sydney’s Central Walk now open

Central Walk

The final section of the new Central Walk at Central Station in Sydney’s south-west is now open to the public.

Delivered as part of the Sydney Metro City & Southwest project, a total of 15 new escalators and four new lifts branch off Central Walk, connecting customers to suburban rail platforms.

The 80-metre-long and 19-metre-wide route is expected to give customers a fast and direct way to platforms, trains, buses, light rail, and metro services in 2024.

The construction of the walkway occurred below eight platforms where trains remained operational. More than 7000 tiles and 500 lights were also installed as part of the works and 38,000 tonnes of rock were removed.

New service connection and installation work is continuing within the construction site at Chalmers Street, which will create a new entrance to Central Station. Additional focus is now expected on final touches for the new metro platforms 27-metres below the station, whilst preparing for the opening of the north-south concourse.

With Central Walk now open, it is expected to cater to future demand at the station, predicted to double in the next decade.

Sydney Metro services are set to start at Central Station in 2024.
