The Station landscaping
The space between Market Street Lawn and the former Newcastle Station bus depot is being transformed into exciting new public domain.
A vibrant new space
The temporary lawn and pathway between The Station and Market Street Lawn will be replaced with sculpted garden beds, shady trees, seating, new paving and picnic space. The result will be an attractive and inviting continuous link between two of Newcastle’s premier public spaces.
A new public plaza will replace the former bus depot, creating a versatile community space that connects The Station with the waterfront. Interpretive features will tell the stories of the site’s Aboriginal and European history.
A Development Application for the landscaping has been approved, and an open tender process is now underway to select a contractor to carry out the works.
Work is expected to start in February 2020 and continue throughout the year. The entire site will be fenced-off during this time, and the temporary car park adjacent to The Station will be closed.
