More space and safety in station upgrade

 

Strathfield rail station is to get a major overhaul, with more space on the concourse, safety cameras and better lighting.

The move comes after representations to transport minister Gladys Berejiklian from Charles Casuscelli, MP for Strathfield.

 “Whenever I am out meeting with local residents Strathfield Station is always raised a top priority," Casuscelli said in a press release.

"With more than 40,000 passenger movements through the Station every day, we want to make sure customers are able to travel through the station and catch their train as quickly and safely as possible.

“Upgrades will include creating more space on the main concourse for customers and relocating passenger information displays so they’re more convenient. We will also improve lighting and install CCTV within the paid concourse area.

“Strathfield Station has been flagged as a priority under the NSW Government’s $770 million Transport Access Program, designed to improve transport infrastructure and make public transport an attractive option for customers across the state."

"I have advocated for these upgrades because local residents have told me how important they are," Mr Casuscelli said. "I took some key officials from the Transport Minister's office through the station just last month and it is great to see how seriously they have taken the concerns of Strathfield and surrounding areas," Mr Casuscelli concluded.

The project is currently in planning stages and construction work is expected to get underway on upgrades later this year.
