Franklin Road railway station, Sydney

Circular Quay railway station, Sydney

Circular Quay is a CityRail station located in Sydney, Australia and is situated on the City Circle line. The station is elevated with the elevated Cahill Expressway roadway directly above it, and lies directly behind the Circular Quay ferry terminals from which services operate to a number of locations around Sydney Harbour. The area is also the terminus for a number of bus services. Circular Quay is the nearest railway station to the Sydney Opera House and The Rocks area of Sydney, and provides spectacular views of Sydney Harbour and the Sydney Opera House.

History

The station opened on 20 January 1956, and its construction completed the City Circle railway as originally envisaged by Bradfield making it the newest station on the line. There have been various proposals to relocate the station underground in conjunction with the demolition of the Cahill Expressway, however these have not come to fruition. In 2006 RailCorp performed maintenance and cleaning of the station's 50 year old facade. Tenders have been called for a major refurbishment in 2007, including new lighting, toilets and an upgrade of the ticket office and shopfront facades.

Platforms/Services

Trains on the East Hills, South, Bankstown and Inner West lines pass through Circular Quay, and the station is considered the terminal point for these services (technically it is where the run number for the service changes). Services on the Illawarra line used the station until the 1979 completion of the Eastern Suburbs line. The station is manned from first to last train, and is fully accessible to wheelchairs.
