The New South Wales Government has revealed that CPB Contractors part of the CIMIC Group, has won the contract to design and build the Sydney Metro City and Southwest Pitt Street station from 2020.
The 250-metre-long underground Pitt Street Station will run from Park Street to Bathurst Street, between Pitt and Castlereagh Street. It will connect the two station entries with retail and commercial facilities.
In addition, CPB will also work with Oxford Properties Group to develop two high-rise commercial and residential buildings above the station.
CIMIC Group Chief Executive Officer, Michael Wright, said the project continues the companyâ€™s track record of providing important infrastructure to benefit communities and help to drive continued economic growth.
â€œOur multi-disciplinary skills will be central to delivering this vibrant and important new public transport and commercial hub in the heart of Sydneyâ€™s central business district,â€ Wright said.
The metro station at Pitt Street serves 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:
Indicative travel time (from 2024)
Works will begin in 2020 and are expected to conclude in 2023.
