The Olympic Park railway station is a railway station on the Sydney Trains metropolitan rail network of Sydney, in the state of New South Wales, in Australia. It primarily serves the sporting and leisure complex Sydney Olympic Park. The station is designed to support large crowds travelling to and from the stadiums and sportsgrounds located in the complex. The station and sports facilities were built for the 2000 Summer Olympics, but are retained for post-games uses. The stadiums are about 3 km (1.9 mi) from any other rail line, which necessitated the rail branchline.

DesignEdit

The design of the station by HASSELL has been critically acclaimed by many. It has won the 1998 BHP Colorbond Award for innovative use of steel architecture, and the 1998 Sir John Sulman Medal, from the Royal Australian Institute of Architects.

The station is located on a single track balloon loop spur line, but the station itself has 2 tracks and 4 platform faces. Ordinarily, the centre island platform is used for both boarding and alighting, but this changes when the station is operating in major event mode. In this mode, the centre island platform is used by alighting passengers and the two side platforms are brought into use for boarding passengers. This arrangement boosts the station's capacity by managing crowding and allowing trains to run closer together.

PlatformsEdit

In normal operation mode, the station is served by three to six trains per hour.
