Rail commuters now have extra parking, a safer kiss-and-ride zone and more sheltered bike racks as part of the completion of a major upgrade at Kingswood Train Station.
Member for Penrith Stuart Ayres said Kingswood commuters will now benefit from modern, accessible and safer public transport.
“The existing commuter car park on the southern side of the station has been improved and expanded with 23 new car parking spaces, CCTV surveillance and lighting,” Mr Ayres said.
“The existing kiss-and-ride and taxi zones have been relocated from the Great Western Highway and are now adjacent to the station entrance making it much safer and easier for people to be dropped off.
“Cyclists can also benefit from new sheltered bike racks on both sides of the station and improved lighting has been installed in the car park on the northern side of the rail line to improve safety for motorists.
“Other work on the northern side of the station was completed late last year and included sign posted kiss-and-ride and taxi zones with new shelters, improvements to bus stops on Park Avenue and footpath upgrades.
“This $3.9 million upgrade to transport facilities at Kingswood will help make catching the train a much more convenient option for customers,” Mr Ayres said.
