Located at the intersection of Broadway and south George Street, Railway Square was redefined by the futuristic new bus station and four giant light pylons and coloured ribbons of steel were created. The architectural expression was designed by Margaret Petrykowski in coordination with artist Merilyn Fairskye to form a statement as Sydney's southern gateway.
In the late 19th century, Railway Square was a steamy hive of activity; passengers queued for steam trams; pedestrians crossed the streets in all directions; an octagonal 6-man cast iron urinal serviced the hordes.
Railway Square is today a hot spot; situated in the vibrant Haymarket area with Sydney's Chinatown close by. Today Railway Square throbs with life and vibrant colour and good access to all things Sydney: the Sydney Entertainment Centre, the Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre, the Australian National Maritime Museum, the Powerhouse Museum, Paddy's Market, Sydney's Chinese Gardens, the IMAX theatre, Star City Casino, Sydney Aquarium, Tumbalong Park and Wildlife World.
