Residents have until August 19 to provide comment on proposed accessibility upgrades at Narara railway station.
Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast and Member for Terrigal, Adam Crouch, said the upgrade is being delivered through the Transport Access Program, an initiative to deliver safe, modern and accessible public transport infrastructure.
“It’s important that all train customers can easily access Narara station including people with a disability, limited mobility, parents and carers with prams and travellers with luggage,” Crouch said.
“I am encouraging everyone to provide feedback on the Review of Environmental Factors document, which outlines the plans for the project, potential local impacts and how these will be managed.”
The proposed accessibility upgrade includes: two new lifts connecting the platforms to the existing footbridge; a new accessible parking space and kiss and ride space in both commuter car parks; a new accessible path from the station to Narara Valley Dr; formalised Boarding Assistance Zones on each platform; formalised pedestrian crossing across Narara Valley Dr; and relocation of the existing southbound bus stop on Narara Valley Dr.
More details are available on the Transport for NSW website.
