Central State Significant PrecinctSkip to main content
An iconic landmark, Central Station is well located in a vibrant area surrounded by leading universities, businesses and is at the heart of a revitalisation of Central Sydney.
The addition of the new Sydney Metro and Sydney Light Rail network presents a unique opportunity to upgrade Central Station and transform the area into an innovation and technology precinct based around a key transport network.
The innovation and technology precinct will be a major hub for tech industries, universities, research institutes, visionaries and start-ups. The precinct will be a leader in collaboration, innovation and jobs for the future.

The draft Strategic Vision and Western Gateway sub-precinct rezoning proposal, including supporting technical documents, are on exhibition until 27 November 2019
