Marrickville Station set for major upgrade
Minister for Transport Gladys Berejiklian today announced the NSW Government would deliver a multi-million dollar upgrade at Marrickville Station, making the busy station more accessible for customers.
Ms Berejiklian said the improvements were part of the $770 million Transport Access Program – a NSW Government initiative to deliver real improvements for public transport customers which has more than 60 projects underway or completed.
“The NSW Government is getting on with the job of delivering modern and accessible transport infrastructure where it’s needed most,” Ms Berejiklian said.
“Now that Marrickville has been identified for a major upgrade, the Government will undertake the necessary work to determine the scope of what will be needed to make the station accessible for customers including those using a wheelchair, the elderly and families with prams.”
Lifts, new stairs and ramps, upgrades to the concourse, installation of CCTV cameras, increased lighting and improvements to the interchange and bicycle parking facilities will be considered as part of a package of improvements at the station, subject to feasibility.
Planning documents will be made available as part of the community consultation process to allow the public to have their say on the proposed works.
“The NSW Government has shown a strong commitment to improving stations and transport options where they are needed most,” Ms Berejiklian said.
The final scope and timeline for Marrickville will be determined as the relevant feasibility work is undertaken.
Nearby Sydenham and Newtowns Station have both received signifigant upgrades over the last year.
