Sydney Metro Martin Place northern atrium and escalators make progress

The new Sydney Metro Martin Place Station has taken another significant step forward, with the northern atrium coming to life.

The 40-metre-high atrium is an architectural feature and a source of natural light that will filter through to the metro platforms.

The northern entrances, where customers will access the atrium, will integrate transport, retail and commercial spaces, with public art featured throughout. 

Customers accessing the station through the northern entrance, from Castlereagh, Hunter and Elizabeth streets, will enter the atrium and travel down two sets of escalators to reach the metro platforms.

Work is underway to install escalators at Martin Place metro station. There will be eight escalators in the northern atrium, with a total of 25 across the station precinct.

The escalators range in size from between 23 metres and 29 metres and each weigh between 19 and 22 tonnes.  

The project team has also started work to install finishes and fit out the station, including the installation of platform screen doors, ready for metro services to start through the city in 2024.
