Victoria Cross Over Station Development


In March 2017, Premier Gladys Berejiklian and Transport Minister Andrew Constance unveiled the new Sydney Metro station designs. The new Metro Stations have been designed to allow for future over-station development.

It is envisioned that an over-station development located at Victoria Cross, North Sydney would revitalise the area, creating a vibrant transport, commercial and retail precinct in the heart of the North Sydney business district.

Mecone was engaged by Transport for NSW as part of a team of specialist consultants to design and deliver an integrated Sydney Metro Victoria Cross over-station development. Mecone’s role in the project includes the provision of strategic advice, review and advice on applicable planning controls and to manage the planning approval process.

Scope of Works

Mecone’s involvement included initial planning advice on the key project stages and milestones and the preparation of a scoping study. Mecone was subsequently engaged to undertake planning investigations to identify potential corridor options for protection. The scope of works included:

  • Strategic Assessment and Preliminary Feasibility;
  • Preparation of SEARs for a State Significant Development application;
  • Preparation of an Environmental Impact Statement for the application; and
  • Ongoing liaison with Council Officers and the Department of Planning and Environment.
