A Marshalling Response Team is being deployed to Gosford Station from this afternoon.
Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast and Member for Terrigal Adam Crouch said the team of marshalling officers would be on hand to encourage social distancing and safe behavior by school students.
“Having Gosford and Henry Kendall High Schools located nearby Gosford Station means it is very busy in the morning and at the end of each school day,” Mr Crouch said.
“This initial deployment of the Marshalling Response Team to Gosford will focus on school student behavior when entering and exiting the concourse.
“The Team can assist with crowd management, provide extra guidance to customers and limit the amount of people who can enter a platform if required.”
Mr Crouch said the NSW Government was working hard to keep the transport network COVID-safe.
“I want to thank everyone on the Central Coast for using common sense to keep themselves and fellow commuters safe,” Mr Crouch said.
“Right across the network, changes have been made to help people follow the social distancing rules when travelling to work, school or university.
“We are encouraging people to continue working from home, but for those who need to travel to Sydney or Newcastle there are green dots which show the safest place to sit or stand.
“Regular deep cleaning is also occurring on trains with more than 700 extra cleaners hired across NSW since March.”
