Parliamentary Secretary for Transport and Infrastructure, Mark Coure MP, today welcomed the start of planning work for an accessibility upgrade at Bexley North Station as part of the NSW Government’s Transport Access Program.
“The Transport Access Program is a NSW Government initiative to deliver safe modern and accessible public transport infrastructure across the state and I am delighted that important planning work will commence soon at Bexley North Station,” Mr Coure said.
“This is the first step to determine what improvements are needed to make this station accessible. Early investigation work will be completed in the coming months followed by the development of concept plans.
Once the concept designs have been completed we will seek feedback from the community which will help to shape the upgrades,” Mr Coure said.
In the 2018 NSW Budget, the Government announced a further $133 million was being invested in the Transport Access Program to accelerate planning for accessibility improvements at 15 stations across the network including Como.
The NSW Government has invested more than $1 billion in the Transport Access Program since 2011. To date, more than 450 Transport Access Program projects are either completed or underway across the state.
This also includes the planned multi-storey Beverly Hills commuter car park with investigations now being held.
Upgrades under the Program have been delivered nearby at:
- Oatley – new lifts added, stairs, footbridge and 100 new car parking spaces
- Narwee – improved lift access, stairs, lighting and security enhancements
- Padstow – new lifts, 100 new commuter car parking spaces and stairs
- Holsworthy – more than 470 additional commuter parking spaces and new lifts
