Early works are now underway at Penrith Station to improve transport facilities.
Member for Penrith, Stuart Ayres, said the upgrades would provide for better customer experiences and increase capacity for future growth.
“The community will see more activity around the Station as we start setting up the site compounds and early works on station platforms,” Ayres said.
“Once complete, customers using Penrith Station will benefit from new lifts and stairs to the platforms, an upgraded station concourse, improved bus, taxi, and kiss and ride areas, and upgrades to lighting and CCTV.”
The works form part of the NSW government’s Transport Access Program which aims to deliver modern, safe and accessible transport infrastructure.
Planning is also underway to build a 300-space, multi-storey car park on the same block of land.
More than $150 million has been spent to upgrade six Western Sydney stations, including Pendle Hill, Blacktown and Wentworth Falls Stations.
More than 450 projects are underway or have been completed since the program began in April 2012.
