Barangaroo Station Update
15th March 2021 – Media Release
Barangaroo Station $217 million contract has been awarded to BESIX Watpac. The station will take shape 30 metres underground, however, the entrance will be built next to Nawi Cove and upgrading Hickson Road.
At Nawi Cove and along Hickson Road, there will be new footpaths, trees, lighting, bike parking and street furniture, as well as a new separated cycle link.
The station fit out, which will start in October, will create 300 jobs at the peak of construction.
The station will transform access to the Walsh Bay Arts and Cultural precinct, as well as providing easy access to nearby residential, commercial and entertainment areas and the ferry hub, while taking pressure off Wynyard and Martin Place stations.
The excavation stage is complete after two years of work to remove about 650,000 tonnes of dirt and rock, enough to fill almost 100 Olympic swimming pools.
When the station opens in 2024, customers will benefit from fast travel times to Barangaroo of about 44 minutes from Rouse Hill, 26 minutes from Belmore, 24 minutes from Epping and just three minutes from Victoria Cross Station.
