The government of New South Wales has granted planning permission to the Sydney Metro Victoria Cross integrated station development. The project includes construction of a 42-storey commercial office tower, a new community hub, a pedestrian link from the station plaza to Denison Street and almost 1,300 square metres of new public open space. Minister for Planning and Public Spaces Rob Stokes and Minister for Transport Andrew Constance inspected Victoria Cross Metro Station’s underground railway site, including the largest rail cavern in Australia at 265 metres long, 25 metres wide and 20 metres high. AUD 476 million contracts were awarded to Lendlease in 2018 to deliver Sydney Metro’s Victoria Cross Station and the landmark building above it. This tower will provide space for more than 4,000 office workers on top of a world-class public transport system

With more than 357,000 tonnes of crushed rock removed, excavation of the Metro and service tunnels is now complete, and the cavern and these tunnels are being lined with concrete.

With tunnelling complete and remaining excavation underway, station fit-out works on the Victoria Cross Metro Station are scheduled to commence in early 2021, with the tower expected to be completed by mid-2024.
