Train customers and residents are invited to provide feedback on proposed accessibility upgrades at Point Clare railway station.
Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast and Member for Terrigal, Adam Crouch, said the upgrade was one of seven local projects to receive new funding in the 2020-21 NSW Budget.
“The NSW Government is improving accessibility at seven stations including Tuggerah, Lisarow, Niagara Park, Narara, Woy Woy, Point Clare and Koolewong,” Crouch said.
“We want to make sure all train customers, including people with a disability, limited mobility, parents and carers with prams and travellers with luggage, can easily access Point Clare station and its facilities both now and into the future.”
Key features of the proposed accessibility upgrades include: two new lifts connecting each platform to the street level and commuter car parks as well as new stairs, pathways and ramps.
There will also be new accessible parking spaces and Kiss and Ride spaces and an upgraded bus stop waiting area including seating and tactile ground surface indicators on Brisbane Water Dr.
There will be upgrades to the existing toilets to provide a new family accessible toilet and a new unisex ambulant toile, and improvements will be made to lighting, power, wayfinding and CCTV.
Feedback can be provided until 5pm on Monday, November 30, at www.transport.nsw.gov.au/pointclare.
Feedback will help inform the planning approval documents, which will be placed on public display for community consultation in coming months.
