Through Sydney Metro, the NSW Government will provide a new generation of trains to connect people across Sydney. The new Waterloo Station will be located underground, with an entrance via the corner of Raglan and Cope Streets, Waterloo. Construction of the Sydney Metro is underway and Waterloo Station is scheduled to open in 2024.
The Waterloo Metro Quarter is the area above and around the station bounded by Botany Road, Cope Street, Raglan Street and Wellington Street.
UrbanGrowth NSW Development Corporation (UrbanGrowth NSW) and Sydney Metro have prepared a comprehensive masterplan for the Waterloo Metro Quarter, which is integrated with the approved Metro station design.
UrbanGrowth NSW has now submitted the State Significant Precinct (SSP) Study for the Waterloo Metro Quarter to the Department of Planning and Environment for assessment.
Sydney Metro has also submitted a Concept State Significant Development application (SSD) that seeks approval for concept plans for development over and adjacent to the new Waterloo Metro Station.
The SSP Study and draft planning controls, as well as the SSD application, were on public exhibition until Wednesday 30 January 2019.
The delivery of the Waterloo Metro Station is part of the Sydney Metro CBD and South West Project. The metro project was approved as State Significant Infrastructure (SSI) in January 2017 (SSI 15_7400). The State Significant Infrastructure approval includes construction of a new rail line including tunnels, new stations (including Waterloo Metro Station) and associated infrastructure. Construction of the Sydney Metro is underway and Waterloo Station is scheduled to open in 2024.
Sydney Metro, in conjunction with UrbanGrowth NSW, have prepared a State Significant Development application (SSD) that seeks approval for concept plans for development over and adjacent to the approved Waterloo Metro Station. You can find out more and have your say about the SSD on the Major Projects website.
The SSD application is separate to the SSP Study but is being assessed and processed concurrently. The below provides an overview of where these applications are up to in the process:
