Relocating existing artworks

The construction of Victoria Cross and Martin Place metro stations impacted four existing artworks.

Sydney Metro worked with North Sydney Council relocating Harbour Cycles by Richard Byrnes.

The artwork is now located in a park adjoining Milsons Point station.


In Martin Place, Four Continents and P&O Wall Mural by Douglas Annand, along with P&O Wall Fountain by Tom Bass were carefully removed.

The artworks will be relocated around the Hunter Street entrance to Martin Place station.

Sydney Metro undertook a de-accessioning process for each of the four artworks.

Councils and developers assisted to determine the best long-term course of action.

Artists and families of the deceased artists contributed to this planning.

After careful removal, storage, refurbishment and re-installation, all artworks will be back on public display.
