NSW PT hub almost ready


Sydney’s newly-redeveloped Wynyard Station includes better bus facilities

The design of Sydney’s new Wynyard Station and bus hub has been revealed with a free smart-phone app giving 360-degree views of what the station will look like, after going live this week.

The $100 million Wynyard Station upgrade will create a new gateway to Sydney’s financial district and western CBD, with increased capacity for the future.

The NovoView app, developed by Novo Rail, enables customers to experience 360-degree views of what the station, which is due to open in the middle of this year, will look like.

"This new app, will give our customers a taste of the lighter, brighter and cleaner Wynyard Station that will be completed later this year," New South Wales (NSW) minister for transport and infrastructure Andrew Constance says.

"It’s a fantastic piece of technology and offers customers a unique insight into one of our major station upgrades."

The virtual reality technology allows users to select from three panoramas of the completed station, with the option to explore other project information including a construction photo gallery.

The Wynyard Station upgrade, is just one of a number of projects the NSW Government is delivering to improve public transport access in the Sydney CBD and has been designed to tie in well with the new light rail facilities.

The Wynyard Walk pedestrian link and the new Barangaroo Ferry Hub will also open to customers later this year, making public transport a more viable option for those who live and work in the area.
