Plans to upgrade Toongabbie train station are on track.
Downer EDI Works Pty Ltd has been awarded the contract for a major upgrade at the station as part of the state government’s Transport Access Program.
Commuters will see a big boost to accessibility and security following the upgrade.
It includes new lifts to the platforms, accessible toilets, all weather protection canopies, additional lighting and new CCTV cameras.
Two ‘kiss and ride’ facilities will be created on Portico Parade and Wentworth Avenue, The bus shelters on Portico Parade will be refreshed while new bicycle storage will also be installed.
“We will start work immediately on detailed designs which will be guided by the feedback received from the community earlier this year, with construction to commence as soon as possible,” Seven Hills MP Mark Taylor said.
The major upgrade is one of several Transport Access Program projects currently underway in western Sydney. Construction is well underway at Pendle Hill and Wentworthville stations with an upgrade for Harris Park station due to begin next year.
There are also plans for increase commuter parking at Pendle Hill, which has raised community concerns and may involve the relocation of Cassia Community Centre, a well-utilised community hub.
