Marrickville Station Design & Precinct Plan
Sydney Metro (City & Southwest) has released a draft Station Design and Precinct Plan (SDPP) for Marrickville Station. The plan shows how the new station design has developed and how it will integrate with the surrounding precinct. You can view it here.
We have compiled our own feedback and you can read the full report here.
Summary of our key feedback on the Plan is that Save Marrickville:
- Supports planned conservation of the original layout and finishes of station buildings.
- Is concerned at proposed removal of heritage brick platform walls and requests more information.
- Recommends inclusion of rest rooms for both men and women on both platforms, to be accessible and available at all times.
- Recommends heritage station buildings and platforms be retained for use by the public and for provision of public transport for the public, and not for private commercial gain.
- Recommends heritage ticket office on Platform 2 be made available for public use.
- Recommends design of Platform Screen Doors (PSDs) and Mechanical Gap Fillers (MGFs) do not devalue the character and heritage value of the station buildings and platforms.
- Supports completion of a shared cycle and pedestrian pathway between Station and Myrtle Streets.
- Requests more detailed information and opportunity for further feedback regarding the proposed design and use of station buildings, and proposed design of Platform Screen Doors and Mechanical Gap Fillers, as details cannot be determined from diagrams or text.
If you have any concerns or feedback on the Plan we urge you to let Sydney Metro know. Feedback on the Plan can be emailed to [email protected] by 5pm Friday 24 July 2020.
