SPEEDPANEL® on site at the longest escalator in the Southern Hemispher


Sydney’s Central Station has become home to the longest escalators in the Southern Hemisphere.

Speedpanel’s unrivalled height and span performance made it a natural choice for the Internal Separation Walls seen at 0:05 in the clip above. Speedpanel Installer Alkon did a great job with the continuous 4m high x 120m long run of vertical Speedpanel.

The $994 million upgrade, which will also feature nine 45-metre-long escalators, the largest in the southern hemisphere, is part of the Sydney Metro project, which will link the light rail, suburban trains and metro lines and is due to open in three years.
