Project Completed: Edmondson Park Railway Station
On 26 September 1855, the first passenger railway line in NSW opened from Sydney to ‘Parramatta Junction’, which was located just west of present day Granville Railway Station. The original city ‘Sydney terminal’ station was located south of the present-day Central Station, on the south side of the Devonshire Street tunnel. Four intermediate stations were located along the line at Newtown, Ashfield, Burwood and Homebush. An ‘overbridge’ running under Railway Square near Sydney’s Central Station is the oldest surviving structure on the NSW railway system.Opened in 1855, it remains from the first phase of railway construction in NSW, providing access from Sydney’s Railway Yard through to the Darling Harbour Goods Yard.
Now in 2016 at Edmondson Park you can enjoy having space to grow while keeping in touch with life’s essentials including shops, schools and your very own train station. Situated next to the exclusive Denham Court and conveniently close the M5 and M7 motorways, everything you need is at your fingertips!
GHD Architects opted for The Fairview Group’s Vitranamel due to it’s unrivalled performance in durability, non-combustibility which is upmost priority for public areas.
