Project story

Sydney’s central business district has grown significantly over the last decade, putting huge demand on the public transport system as growing numbers of commuters flock to the state capital.


As part of a major infrastructure improvement programme, Mace provided programme resources to assist with delivery of the upgrade of one of Sydney’s busiest railway stations.


Our experience in infrastructure development, understanding of major public sector programmes and knowledge of the city meant we were able to transform Wynyard Station with minimal disruption to commuters.


The gateway to Sydney’s central business district has now been brought into the 21st century to offer the 100,000 daily commuters an uncongested and improved journey to work, and the many tourists with a welcoming station that is easy to navigate. 


A$100m upgrade
100,000+ customers each day

Points of note

Revived heritage

The upgrade of the station revived its heritage value without compromising on the modern, clean, functional design by redefining the existing columns and beams of the station and retaining the intricate timber and steel balustrades on the stairs.

Early involvement

By getting involved in the design and programming of the works early on in the programme we were able to input into the project's logistics and sequencing of work. Through collaborative working the station’s operations office and customer facing areas were kept open during the refurbishment works.

Customer focused delivery

Maintaining customer safety and minimising disruption to customers and station operation was paramount. The project included the provision of temporary corridors that maintained pedestrian access and enabled works to carry on 24/7.
