Work is underway at Heathcote Station as part of a major makeover to boost accessibility for customers.

Our project team is setting up their work compounds right now and we will also be carrying out some important service investigations to pave the way for major construction which will start in coming months.

This is a big step in the right direction and means customers are one step closer to this much needed upgrade.

The improvements to be delivered at Heathcote include a new overhead pedestrian footbridge with a new lift and stairs, new forecourts on both sides of the station, and an accessible toilet on the station platform. There will also be upgrades to commuter parking areas, formal kiss and ride areas and bicycle storage facilities.

Community feedback received when plans were on public display in December 2014 has been used to guide the design.

I thank the community for their feedback and interest in this project. We will now be getting on with the job of delivering this fantastic upgrade as quickly as possible for customers.

The improvements are being delivered as a part of the NSW Government’s Transport Access Program, an initiative to deliver accessible, modern and integrated transport infrastructure.
