An accessibility upgrade at Point Clare Station is progressing, with lift foundation excavation work now under way.
Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast and Member for Terrigal Adam Crouch said the NSW Government is funding this multi-million-dollar upgrade, as part of the Transport Access Program.
“The design for this upgrade has been developed in consultation with our community, ensuring it will meet and exceed the needs of Point Clare residents and make public transport their first-choice option,” Mr Crouch said.
“Once complete, Point Clare Station will be more accessible for people with a disability or limited mobility, parents and carers with prams, and customers with luggage.
“It’s exciting to see construction well and truly underway, with concrete and excavation work for the lift well foundation on the Brisbane Waters Drive side of the station, and excavation and trenching work on Kurrawa Avenue.
“We’ll be delivering two new lifts connecting each platform to the commuter car parks and a new ramp and stairs from Kurrawa Avenue commuter carpark connecting to the new lift.
“The upgrade is also providing new accessible parking spaces and kiss and ride spaces in the car parks, a new family accessible toilet and a new unisex ambulant toilet, along with upgrades to pathways and lighting to improve safety and accessibility.”
The Point Clare Station upgrade is expected to be completed in 2022, with more information available at www.transport.nsw.gov.au/pointclare.
