Construction & Development Updates

A valued and unique heritage

The Locomotive Workshop building is listed, along with all its machinery collection, on the NSW State Heritage Register. The entire site is also included as part of the Eveleigh Railway Workshops listing on the NSW State Heritage Register.

The machinery collection is predominantly housed in static displays in Bays 1 and 2 as well as a small number of other locations throughout the remainder of the Locomotive Workshop.

The revitalisation plan,

Our carefully considered plans to revitalise the iconic Locomotive Workshop will deliver a unique cultural and innovation hub for Sydney, preserving and celebrating this magnificent history whilst making it accessible for everyone to enjoy.

Our submission for the sensitive conversion and adaptive re-use of the Locomotive Workshop has been approved by the Independent Planning Commission NSW through the submission of two SSDAs. These relate to the Eastern portion (Bays 1-4a) and the Western portion (Bays 5-13 and 15) with delivery now well underway.

Managing the movable heritage collection,

A draft management plan for the Eveleigh Locomotive Workshop machinery collection has been prepared for South Eveleigh in conjunction with an audit of our collection. Links to these documents are listed below:
