Member for Hornsby Matt Kean MP is pleased to announce plans for up an accessibility upgrade at Hawkesbury River Station will start by the end of this year after plans for the project were approved.
The upgrade is part of the NSW Government’s Transport Access Program, an initiative to deliver safe, modern and accessible public transport infrastructure across the state, and will include:
- Two new lifts to provide access to the station platforms
- A new accessible parking space and Kiss and Ride space in the Dangar Road car park
- A new accessible pathway and pedestrian crossing to the Dangar Road car park
- A new family accessible toilet and ambulant toilet
- Improvements to CCTV and lighting.
“We are getting on with the job of making Hawkesbury River Station accessible so not matter what your age or ability you can access the station,” Mr Kean said.
“I would like to thank everyone who took the time to provide feedback on the plans during the consultation period. This has been reviewed by our project team and responses are now available in the Determination Report on the project website.”
Site investigations and detailed design work will commence later this year with major construction to start in 2020.
More than $2 billion has been committed to the Transport Access Program since 2011, with more than 470 projects either completed or currently underway across NSW.
