New Sydney Metro station design released

The New South Wales Government has released the design for the new Bankstown Station which will be future-proofed for potential underground platforms.

The station will be upgraded to Sydney Metro standards as part of Australia’s biggest public transport project.

The design allows for the construction of potential underground platforms as further solutions are explored for a revitalised Bankstown town centre.

The new Bankstown Station is set to get a new air-conditioned trained every four minutes in the peak, level access between platforms and trains, and direct connections to employment and education precincts like Barangaroo, North Sydney and Macquarie University.

Transport for New South Wales, the Department of Planning and Environment, and Canterbury-Bankstown Council will also work together to develop an integrated town centre master plan to improve pedestrian access and amenity through the precinct.

Transport for New South Wales has safeguarded the potential for underground platforms as part of an alternative design for the station, and will work with council and the community to develop a master plan for the area.

The government will soon release the Environmental Impact Statement for the Sydenham to Bankstown section of Sydney Metro.

Sydney Metro services to Bankstown are expected to start in 2024.
