Lisarow Station’s upgrade is complete with the public now able to enjoy improved accessibility and a new Bush Tucker Garden.
Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast and Member for Terrigal Adam Crouch said the NSW Government funded the $12.4 million project from its Transport Access Program.
“This project focused on improving safety, accessibility and connectivity for all public transport customers,” Mr Crouch said.
“These improvements have made Lisarow Station easier to access for all customers including people with a disability, limited mobility, parents and carers with prams, and travelers with excess luggage.
“Customers can now use the new lifts and the upgraded accessible paths in and around the station, as well as new accessible parking spaces and the ‘kiss and ride’ space in the Railway Crescent commuter car park.
“Accessible improvements to Lisarow Station also include a new ramp to the southern station entry from the Pacific Highway pedestrian footpath, formalised Boarding Assistance Zones on each platform and upgraded CCTV and lighting for improved safety and security.
“Our aim is to make train travel as easy as possible for every commuter and this upgrade certainly does that for Lisarow locals.
“These upgrades provided valuable work to tradies here on the Central Coast, over the course of the 15 months it took to complete this project.”
The NSW Government has committed more than $2.2 billion to the Transport Access Program since 2011.
