The scope and cost estimates for this section of the route are subject to review following the Network North announcement. An updated cost estimate will be reported to Parliament in due course, noting we are seeking to strip back the project and deliver a station that works, but does not include any features we do not need.
In relation to private finance, work has commenced on developing the design of the model that will be used, as well as consideration of how and where the alternative funding generated by this will be spent. This will include consideration of a range of development models and financing mechanisms, before a final proposal is determined. Updates will be reported to Parliament in due course as this work progresses.
