Stuart Ayres MP, Member for Penrith announced today that planning approval has been received for a major upgrade of Penrith Station.
“The improvements include 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,” Stuart Ayres said.
“The upgrade is designed to provide a better customer experience and increase capacity for future growth in the region.
“This upgrade at Penrith Station will make catching public transport a much more attractive option.
“We already have a contractor on board to deliver this project, with construction planned to commence mid this year.”
The Penrith Station Upgrade is just one of a number of improvements been delivered under the Transport Access Program, a NSW Government initiative to deliver modern, safe and accessible transport infrastructure.
Western Sydney customers have been major beneficiaries of the program with a $150 million investment to upgrade six key Western Sydney stations, including Pendle Hill, Blacktown, Wentworth Falls and Flemington.
Since the Transport Access Program began in April 2012, more than 450 projects are underway or have been completed.
