Have your say about Strathfield Station's new upgrade

Strathfield Station is the eight busiest rail hub in New South Wales and the wear and tear of 20,000 commuters passing through every day has taken a toll on quality of the station.

Transport for NSW has proposed to rejuvenate the station under a $770 million Transport Access Plan, which includes the relocation of the passenger information displays in the subway concourse.

“Work is needed to improve the accessibility and safety of the station,” said Strathfield MP Charles Casuscelli.

“These works will reduce congestion, making it safer and faster for customers to move through the station to catch their train or out to bus stops and other facilities close to the station.”

Under the proposal, shops on the concourse will be demolished and Transport for NSW plans to install better lighting in the station and improve the pavement around the station.  

Earlier last year, reports showed there was a significant amount of congestion on the station's main walkway.

Due to growing population in western Sydney, the report said this congestion would only worsen over time.

The plan is on public display for two weeks and Transport for NSW is seeking submissions from the public.

If the proposal goes ahead, Transport for NSW plans to start construction in mid-2013, aiming to finish the upgrades in four months.

“It is an important opportunity for Strathfield commuters and other local residents to have a say on the development of their station,” said Casuscelli.

“I strongly encourage all interested residents to take the time to consider this government’s proposed plans to upgrade the station and let us know their thoughts.”
