Important accessibility upgrades at Point Clare train station are now complete with the improved amenities open for the public to use.
Parliamentary Secretary for Central Coast Adam Crouch said work had been completed on the multi-million-dollar upgrade, providing better access for people with mobility aids, prams or luggage.
“We’ve seen a major upgrade of this station with new accessible parking spaces, two new kiss and ride car spaces and a fully accessible toilet installed,” Mr Crouch said.
“We’ve upgraded pathways and lighting to improve safety for people travelling to and from Point Clare station.
“The new lifts connect each platform to the commuter car parks and a new ramp and stairs from the Kurrawa Avenue commuter carpark also connect to the lift.
“This work has improved the accessibility for passengers and will make daily life easier for people travelling in the region.”
Minister for Regional Transport and Roads Sam Farraway said the Point Clare station upgrade was funded by the NSW Liberal and Nationals Government’s $2.2 billion Transport Assistance Program (TAP).
“Our Government is building the infrastructure that matters across regional NSW to make daily life easier for commuters,” Mr Farraway said.
“The reality is, many of our regional stations were neglected for years prior to 2011 which is why our Government has invested in the infrastructure that matters to regional communities through programs like TAP.
“This is about ensuring our public transport network is accessible for everyone and since 2011 our government has delivered more than 470 TAP projects across the state.”
Minor finishing work, including site clean-up, will be completed over the coming weeks. This work will be carried out on weekdays from 7am to 6pm and is expected to be completed by late November, weather permitting.
