Built as part of the underground network of the city’s train stations and originally designed by JJC Bradfield, chief engineer for the city railway in the 1920s and 30s. Not to mention the he also designed the Sydney Harbour Bridge.
The station has extremely long escalators, worth a ride in themselves from York Street down to the train services. They are surviving elements of the old Glen Street (Milsons Point) railway station, no longer extant, when the Sydney Harbour Bridge was built.
Note: There are no platforms 1 & 2 at the station, they were used to for the tram lines that serviced the city in earlier times.
The white art deco design AWA Radio Tower features prominently on York Street just to the south of Wynyard Park. Inspired by the design of the Eiffel Tower in Paris it was the tallest building in the city till the 1960s. There is a shot of the tower in the film ’The Matrix’.
