Sydney residents are set to benefit from a major upgrade to Wynyard Station in the central business district, with three applicants shortlisted to carry out the project.
The Property Council of Australia revealed this week that Thiess, Via (a joint venture of Watpac and Ferrovial) and the joint venture of Reed and Bouygues have been named as the finalists among the applicants tendering to design and construct a new pedestrian link at the station.
Known as the Wynyard Walk, the improvement will see a new pedestrian tunnel linking Wynyard station to the junction of Napoleon and Kent Streets.
In addition to the 110-metre long tunnel, improvements at the station will offer more direct access to the concourse from Clarence Street with the construction of a new entrance on Wynyard's western side.
Finally, a pedestrian bridge featuring escalators and lifts that passes over Sussex Street will enable pedestrians to enjoy better access the public space at Barangaroo, as well as NSW's iconic waterfront.
The development could spell good news for anyone with an interest in commercial property in the area, as Wynyard is packed with cafes, retailers and restaurants.
Improved access to the station area means more pedestrian traffic - which could result in improved property values.
