Strathfield Station voted as fourth worst on railway network

Angry commuters have voted Strathfield as having the fourth worst station in the state on the CityRail network.

The list, which also included Town Hall, Central and Wynyard stations was revealed in the NRMA’s inaugural Seeing Red on Rail report.

More than 11,000 passengers took part in the online survey in the biggest non-government study undertaken of the network.

The most alarming find of the report was that more than a third of commuters said they didn’t feel safe at times at the station they most often used.

The second biggest issue was the lack of commuter parking surrounding the stations.

Lack of ventilation and airconditioning with dirty carriages were the biggest source of complaints. 

NRMA spokesman Peter Khoury said the NRMA launched the Seeing Red campaign to help improve Sydney’s rail network and encourage more people to use trains.

“Better air conditioning, cleaner trains and platforms, more security and better parking are things the government can do to give NSW it deserves,” he said in a statement.

“A lot of our members use public transport and want better access to public transport, especially our younger members.”
