Circular Quay is a CityRail station located in Sydney, Australia and is situated on the City Circle line. The station is elevated with the elevated Cahill Expressway roadway directly above it, and lies directly behind the Circular Quay ferry terminals from which services operate to a number of locations around Sydney Harbour. The area is also the terminus for a number of bus services. Circular Quay is the nearest railway station to the Sydney Opera House and The Rocks area of Sydney, and provides spectacular views of Sydney Harbour and the Sydney Opera House.

History

The station opened on 20 January 1956, and its construction completed the City Circle railway as originally envisaged by Bradfield making it the newest station on the line. There have been various proposals to relocate the station underground in conjunction with the demolition of the Cahill Expressway, however these have not come to fruition. In 2006 RailCorp performed maintenance and cleaning of the station's 50 year old facade. Tenders have been called for a major refurbishment in 2007, including new lighting, toilets and an upgrade of the ticket office and shopfront facades. ["News in Brief", Railway Digest, July 2007.
