Construction at Sydney Metro’s Barangaroo station has continued below and above ground, and the project has reached a milestone with the recent completion of station platforms and escalator installation. 


The construction of Barangaroo Station will improve access to the Walsh Bay Arts and Culture precinct and provide easy access to nearby public, residential, commercial, and entertainment areas, and the Barangaroo ferry hub.


195 precast concrete sections, each section weighing the equivalent of an SUV created a 170m long platform within the station.


Four brand new escalators were installed at the station, each measuring in at 25m long. Barangaroo will have a total of ten escalators installed in the station, with the remaining six to be installed by the end of the year. Barangaroo

Next to be installed will be the lifts, with the structural steel for the lift shafts going in at the end of April. The lifts will be operational in 2023, ready for the first metro customers in 2024. 

The train tracks are also getting ready to be laid and preparation is underway to start constructing the station entrance.

Above the surface, a new tower crane has been brought to the site sitting 70m into the sky. The station box has been waterproofed, and the stormwater runoff and piping has been installed, which became useful during the recent wet weather.
