The new lifts at Narara railway station are now operational as the station’s multi million dollar accessibility upgrades continue.
Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast, Adam Crouch, said the upgrade would include creating a new kiss and ride zone, improved toilet facilities and upgrading accessible paths and ramps to ensure the station meets the needs of train customers both now and into the future.
“This $11.8M upgrade will help make sure all our customers, including people with a disability, limited mobility, parents and carers with prams, and travellers with luggage can easily access the station,” Crouch said.
“Customers can now utilise new lifts, with easily accessible paths in and around the station, and improved lighting and wayfinding being completed.
“As well as improving accessibility, this project is supporting more than 660 jobs over the process of planning and construction.”
Deputy Premier and Minister for Regional Transport and Roads, Paul Toole, said the upgrade was being delivered as part of the Transport Access Program, in which the NSW Government has invested more than $2B to provide more accessible, modern, secure and integrated transport infrastructure since 2011.
