Work on accessibility upgrades at Lisarow, Narara and Niagara Park railway stations will get underway this week, with site investigations set to help inform concept designs.
Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast and Member for Terrigal, Adam Crouch, said lifts would be installed at the stations, along with Tuggerah and Ourimbah, and that up to 220 extra car spaces would be provided at Tuggerah, delivering on the State Government’s pre-election commitment.
“The current site investigations involve geotechnical work to identify ground conditions which will help develop the design and construction of the upgrades,” Crouch said.
Member of the Legislative Council, Taylor Martin, said there will be an opportunity for people to have their say on the concept design and planning documentation later this year.
The upgrades are being delivered by the NSW Government’s Transport Access Program, an initiative to deliver safe, modern and accessible public transport infrastructure across NSW.
More than $2B has been committed to upgrading stations and transport interchanges across NSW since 2011, with more than 470 projects completed or underway.
