(Central Walk Concourse)

The NSW Government has announced Central Walk – a new underground concourse at Central Station which will better connect passengers to trains, buses, light rail and the new Sydney Metro.

Central Walk will be a wide, accessible and modern pedestrian link from the eastern side of Central Station, linking the new light rail stop to the new Sydney Metro platforms with direct access to existing suburban platforms.
