The new Pyrmont Station will be on the doorstep of Darling Harbour, Blackwattle Bay, the new Sydney Fish Market and the Sydney CBD.
Pyrmont Station will greatly enhance plans to revitalise this inner-city precinct by encouraging jobs, investment and economic growth. The station will enable a new level of connectivity to the Pyrmont Peninsula and prioritise pedestrian movement through vibrant street frontages and open public spaces.
Pyrmont Station will be located between Pyrmont Bridge Road and Union Street, greatly enhancing plans to revitalise this western gateway to the Sydney CBD.
Access and entry
Station entrances are proposed to be located on Pyrmont Bridge Road and Union Street.
Planning and compliance
The Department of Planning and Environment granted approval for the Sydney Metro West Project Concept between Westmead and the Sydney CBD and station excavation and tunnelling between Westmead and The Bays in March 2021.
Station excavation and tunnelling
The Department of Planning and Environment granted approval for the station excavation and tunnelling between The Bays and Sydney CBD in September 2022.
A Modification Report to the planning approval for station excavation and tunnelling between The Bays and Sydney CBD was on public exhibition in February 2023. The modification proposed to allow for tunnelling to be undertaken 24 hours a day, 7 days a week by road headers and other methods, in addition to tunnel boring machines. This would be consistent with all recent tunnelling projects in Sydney, including other stages of Sydney Metro West. The modification was approved in April 2023.
John Holland Pty Ltd, CPB Contractors Pty Ltd (CPB) & Ghella Pty Ltd joint venture (JCG JV) was awarded the contract for station excavation and tunnelling between The Bays and Sydney CBD.
