New home for Central Coach Terminal20 April 2017
Customers are reminded that the Central Station Coach Terminal is being relocated from 22 April to allow CBD and South East Light Rail work to begin on Eddy Avenue.
All coaches previously operating from Eddy Avenue are being relocated to the Western Forecourt so that construction crews can occupy Eddy Avenue from 28 April. This change does not affect coaches operating from Pitt Street.
Coordinator General Marg Prendergast said that Transport for NSW staff have been working closely with affected operators to ensure that they and their customers had enough notice ahead of the move.
‘The new coach terminal will improve connectivity for many customers, with a taxi rank and ‘kiss and ride’ drop-off area closely, and will give customers better access to seating, toilets and food and drink options within the Grand Concourse,’ Ms Prendergast said.
‘Relocating the coaches for light rail will minimise traffic impacts on Eddy Avenue – it’s a key piece of the puzzle for the project which is on track to begin services in 2019.’
Parking at the Western Forecourt was temporarily suspended during construction of coach bays for the new terminal. Limited parking spaces will be reinstated after construction is complete.
The CBD and South East Light Rail will transform public transport in Sydney with reliable turn-up-and-go services every four minutes between Circular Quay to Randwick and Kingsford via Moore Park and Central.
