Statement of significance:

Bondi Junction underground railway and station is significant as a representative of the latest major railway construction undertaken in the State on the long awaited eastern suburbs railway. The whole of the site is underground and is a development of the structures built in the city in the 1930's and represents the latest in technology at that point in time.

Bondi Junction Station is significant as one of a group of stations that make up the Eastern Suburbs Railway (ESR) line, one of the largest and most contentious post-war rail projects undertaken in the Sydney system, and as one of only two that incorporated a bus interchange as part of a wider public transport strategy. Bondi Junction, as part of the ESR, represented a continuation of the design principles of the underground system as first displayed in the Museum and St James stations and represent the latest in construction and design technology at the time.
