Crows Nest residents won’t have to wait much longer for the new Metro!

Be one of the first to catch a glimpse of the new station on Sunday, May 26, as Sydney Metro throws open the doors to the brand new Crows Nest Station for a Community Open Day.

This is your opportunity to explore the station before it opens to the public. Attendees can take a self-guided tour, meet the team behind the project, walk through the concourse level and brand-new metro platforms, 25 metres below ground.

Visitors will also get a sneak peek at the stunning new public art designed by 36-year-old female artist, Esther Stewart. The geometric installation, adorning both the Pacific Highway and Clarke Street entrances, draws inspiration from the rich heritage of the Crows Nest area. Crafted from bespoke ceramic tiles made at Bendigo Pottery, the work aims to bring a splash of colour to our daily commute.

So when will the station officially open? The word is the Crows Nest Metro Station is nearing completion and is expected to open in a few months. Once running, commuters can expect the following travel times:

  • 4 minutes to Chatswood Station
  • 5 minutes to Barangaroo Station
  • 7 minutes to Martin Place Station.

This will be a game-changer for residents, streamlining commutes to the CBD, local schools, businesses, and nights out in the city. Here’s more on what you can expect:

  • Air-conditioned metro train every four minutes in the peak
  • Retail space near both entrances
  • Dedicated kiss-and-ride and taxi bays
  • Upgraded pedestrian and cycling infrastructure, including new crossings, bike parking, and signage
  • Two entrances: Pacific Highway and Clarke Street
  • Fully accessible stations including lifts
  • Improved CCTV, platform screen doors, and level platforms
  • Improved station interchange facilities
  • All trains stopping at all local stations – no waiting for the right train
  • Less time spent waiting due to higher frequency services
  • New, direct and fast services to Martin Place, Barangaroo, North Sydney, Chatswood and Macquarie Park
  • Convenient interchanges to other rail services at Sydenham, Central and Martin Place.
