REFRESHING CHANGES FOR WESTERN SYDNEY STATIONS
Written on the 5 June 2017 by Kevin Conolly
Members for Riverstone and Seven Hills, Mr Kevin Conolly MP and Mr Mark Taylor MP have announced today that the NSW Government is investing more than $5.5 million to improve the safety, comfort and amenity of seven Western Sydney railway stations.
"The Sydney Trains network plays an important role in the lives of the people of Western Sydney and we want to ensure their stations are clean, modern and well maintained," said Mr Conolly.
Station refreshes are underway at Quakers Hill ($580k), Wentworthville ($725k), Doonside ($961k) and Rooty Hill ($855k).
"We want to make our customers' journeys as easy and comfortable as possible and that experience starts the moment they walk into their station," Mr Taylor said.
The exact program of work varies depending on what individual stations need, but could include:
A deep clean and fresh coat of paint to buildings, platforms and fixtures
Other station refreshes are underway at Canley Vale ($853k), Guildford ($847k) and Leumeah ($702k) also.
Work at all seven Western Sydney stations is due to be completed by the end of June.
"Customers who use these Western Sydney stations will notice significant improvements have been made to their stations, from the freshly painted buildings and platforms to the new toilet facilities and improved lighting for security," Mr Conolly said.
"Energy efficient LED lighting is also being installed at all of the seven stations which helps us reduce our carbon footprint," said Mr Taylor.
More than $163 million has been invested in the Sydney Trains Station Refresh Program since 2013, making improvements to 157 stations across NSW so far.
Other stations refreshed in Western Sydney through this program include Blacktown, Cabramatta, Campbelltown, Fairfield, Granville, Liverpool, Mount Druitt, Penrith, Seven Hills and Westmead.
