Haymarket, Rail Emergency Response Unit

The Rail Emergency Response Unit is located on the corner of Pitt Street and Eddy Avenue at Haymarket. The sandstone structure is part of the ramp which runs up to a bridge over Eddy Avenue connecting to Central railway station and Railway Square. The unit responds to emergency incidents involving the rail network such as derailments and automatic fire alarms within the underground rail network and nearby stations. This part of the structure houses the fire trucks.

  2. What a beautiful structure, Jim. And so unusual that the emergency team supports the rail system.

  3. That is a very creative use of what would otherwise be unused space.

    1. I can remember the space being used for commercial/retail uses originally but had been vacant for a few years before they refurbished it for this purpose.

    2. I'm pretty sure one of those spaces used to be used for a soup kitchen to feed the homeless.
