Bondi Beach Station

DesignInc assisted the Lend Lease led consortium, Bondi Beach Rail Company. The new 3.2 km underground rail link is expected to serve 8,000 return passengers a day and reduce travel time to the city by up to 30 minutes in peak hour, with a 3 minute journey between the beach and Bondi Junction.

The station is located within a station-box underground - the area needed to accommodate the track, platforms and the station facilities. These dimensions allow for a platform length consistent with 8 car Sydney Tangara trains, the provision of a 60m junction where the single track splits into two and a 10m margin for stopping. The design provided a minimal architectural expression at the entrance and camouflaged risers, fire stairs and service elements into the landscape, in so conserving the heritage landscape of Bondi Beach.
