Have your say on Point Clare Station upgrade

18 Nov 2020 regional_development

The NSW Government is inviting train customers and local residents to provide feedback on the proposed accessibility upgrades at Narara Station.

Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast and Member for Terrigal Adam Crouch said the Point Clare Station upgrade is one of seven local projects to receive new funding in the 2020-21 NSW Budget.


“The NSW Government is improving accessibility at seven Train Stations including Tuggerah, Lisarow, Niagara Park, Narara, Woy Woy, Point Clare and Koolewong,” Mr 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,
  • New accessible parking spaces and Kiss and Ride spaces,
  • Upgraded bus stop waiting area including seating and tactile ground surface indicators on Brisbane Water Drive,
  • Upgrades to the existing toilets to provide a new family accessible toilet and a new unisex ambulant toilet, and
  • Improvements to lighting, power, wayfinding and CCTV.


Mr Crouch said $55 million has also been allocated to five local road projects in the 2020-21 NSW Budget.


“Each of these projects will deliver smoother and safer journeys while also creating local job opportunities, which we know are incredibly important at this difficult time,” Mr Crouch said.


“I’m so proud that the 2020-21 NSW Budget delivers a fair share of funding for road and transport projects to the Central Coast community.”


Feedback on the plans to upgrade Point Clare Station can be provided from now until 5pm on Monday, 30 November by completing the online feedback form 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 the coming months.
