Sydney Metro City & Southwest
Sydney Metro is Australia’s biggest public transport project. In 2024, Sydney will have 31 metro railway stations and a 66 kilometre standalone metro railway system. There will be ultimate capacity for a metro train every two minutes in each direction under the Sydney city centre. As part of the Sydney Metro project, an underground station will be constructed at Pitt Street in the Sydney CBD.
The 250 metre-long underground Pitt Street Station will run from Park Street to Bathurst Street, between Pitt and Castlereagh streets, connecting two integrated stations (north and south) above the station entries.

Pitt Street integrated station development (ISD)
Pitt Street Station is an underground station, about 17 metres (north end) to 20 metres (south end) below ground level, located in the Sydney CBD.
Pitt Street Station is strategically located at the junction of Sydney’s southern CBD and the midtown retail precinct, close to mixed employment, residential, entertainment, cultural and events-based activities within the southern Sydney CBD and Chinatown.
The metro station at Pitt Street will serve the retail areas on George and Pitt streets, the civic and entertainment uses on George Street and the emerging southern Sydney CBD residential developments between Park Street and Belmore Park. The station also provides relief to Town Hall Station, and allows interchange onto other modes of public transport including light rail and buses.
The station includes:
- new bike parking on Park and Bathurst streets
- existing bus stops close to the station retained on Park and Castlereagh streets
- existing taxi bays close to the station retained on Castlereagh and Pitt streets
- wayfinding signage and metro information will be provided
- enhancement of pedestrian infrastructure around the station will be refined in consultation with Transport for NSW and City of Sydney Council.
Access and entry:
- a northern pedestrian plaza opening to Pitt and Park streets
- a southern pedestrian plaza opening to Bathurst Street.
The station is located below Pitt Street and Castlereagh Street, south of the Park Street intersection and north of the Bathurst Street intersection.
Indicative travel time (from 2024):
- 2 minutes to Central Station
- 4 minutes to Barangaroo Station
- 7 minutes to Victoria Cross Station.
The Tunnel and Station Excavation contractor (JHCPBG) completed tunnelling and excavation work at Pitt Street Station in late 2020. Construction is now underway to build the station and the over station developments.
Work at the station includes:
- detailed excavation at the base of station shafts
- build north station, south station and the over station development structures including formwork installation, reinforcement and concrete works
- façade installation for the north station, south station and over station developments
- internal fit-out of the north station, south station and over station developments
- public domain works including landscaping and footpaths.
Station Design and Precinct Plan
A draft Station Design and Precinct Plan (SDPP) has been prepared for Pitt Street Station that shows how the new station design has developed and how it will integrate with the surrounding precinct.
Community consultation was carried out in October 2020 and feedback received will help inform the final SDPP that will be submitted to the Department of Planning, Industry and Environment in early 2021. To view a copy of the draft SDPP, please click here.
