An upcoming metro station in Sydney is primed to be named Gadigal Railway Station as announced by the NSW government. Set to be named after Sydney’s traditional owners the station will be built below Pitt, Park and Bathurst streets at the southern end of the Sydney CBD. The station will be made by 2024 along with new metro stations at Crows Nest, Victoria Cross in North Sydney, Barangaroo and Martin Place.
Gadigal Railway Station
The station was initially set to be named Pitt Street Station, but after discussions with Aboriginal stakeholders and communities, including the Metropolitan Local Aboriginal Land Council, the name Gadigal was decided upon by the government.
“Next year, the Sydney CBD will not only have a transformative metro service but also a landmark new metro station paying tribute to the culture and heritage of the Gadigal people,” Jo Haylen, NSW Transport Minister said.
“The importance of Gadigal heritage will be known to locals and visitors alike and I’m confident this station will be a particular point of pride for all Sydneysiders.
Once services start, commuters can expect speedy and reliable metro train services from Gadigal to Crows Nest in 9 minutes, to Chatswood in 13 minutes and to Sydenham in 9 minutes.
Chris Minns, Premier of NSW, further confirmed the news on his Twitter account saying, “Welcome to Gadigal Railway Station – coming 2024.”
