Narara Station’s multi-million dollar upgrade is complete with public transport customers now enjoying better accessibility, safety and connectivity.
Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast and Member for Terrigal Adam Crouch said the $15.5 million upgrade is part of the NSW Government’s Transport Access Program which is being rolled out across NSW.
“Thanks to these upgrades, Narara Station is now easier to access for all customers including people with a disability, people with mobility aids, parents or carers with prams and travellers with luggage,” Mr Crouch said.
“The upgrade supported dozens of jobs over the process of planning and construction, providing a welcome boost to our local economy.
“Customers are already using the new lifts and the upgraded accessible paths in and around the station, which have improved the experience of getting to and from the train platform.
“Other improvements include new accessible parking spaces, a ‘kiss and ride’ space for easier pick-ups and drop-offs, and a new pedestrian crossing across the northern commuter car park.
“There are also formalised Boarding Assistance Zones on each platform, and upgraded CCTV and lighting providing improved safety for all customers.
“Our aim is to make train travel as easy as possible for every commuter and this upgrade certainly does that for Narara locals.
“At nearby Lisarow Station, the recently completed $12.4 million accessibility upgrade has made life easier for customers and our contractors have now left the site.
“The NSW Government has committed more than $2.2 billion to deliver modern, integrated and accessible transport facilities across NSW since 2011.”
