Early site investigations to help inform the concept design for accessibility upgrades at four Central Coast stations will start this week, Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast and Member for Terrigal Adam Crouch has announced.
The upgrades will deliver the NSW Government’s election commitment to install lifts at Tuggerah, Ourimbah, Lisarow, Niagara Park and Narara, as well as up to 220 car park spaces at Tuggerah.
“The current site investigations at Ourimbah, Lisarow, Niagara Park and Narara involve geotechnical work to identify ground conditions, which will help develop the design and construction of the upgrades,” Mr Crouch said.
“At Tuggerah, the site investigations will inform the location and design of the car park, which will increase capacity to approximately 350 spaces.”
Member of the Legislative Council Taylor Martin said there will be an opportunity for people to have their say on the concept design and planning documentation later this year.
“Only the NSW Liberal Government is capable of delivering these upgrades which will make it easier for commuters to access their local station,” Mr Martin said.
The upgrades are being delivered by the NSW Government’s Transport Access Program, an initiative to deliver safe, modern and accessible public transport infrastructure across NSW.
More than $2 billion has been committed to upgrading stations and transport interchanges across NSW since 2011, with more than 470 projects completed or underway.
