Como Station Upgrade

Project overview

The NSW Government is improving accessibility at Como Station.

This upgrade will be delivered as part of the Transport Access Program, an initiative to provide a better experience for public transport customers by delivering modern, safe and accessible infrastructure.

As part of the program, the Como Station Upgrade will provide a station that is accessible to those with a disability, limited mobility, carers/parents with prams and customers with luggage.

The project is expected to be completed by late 2021*.

Project status

Planning approval for the Como Station Upgrade has been granted. Detailed design will occur over the coming months, with on-site investigative works to be undertaken during this time.

Thank you to everyone who provided feedback during the community consultation period in April. Information about the feedback we received during this period and how it was considered can be found in the project Determination report. Stakeholders who provided feedback received a letter with further information about their submission.

Project History

The Review of Environmental Factors (REF) was on public display from Thursday 4 April until Wednesday 1 May 2019. The REF and supporting documentation wereavailable for viewing at Sutherland Library, Sutherland Shire Council Office, the Transport for NSW Chatswood office, and are still available for viewing digitally on this web page.

Stakeholders and the community were invited to submit feedback on the proposed designs during the public display period. Key themes that emerged were:

  • General support for the station becoming accessible
  • Request to retain the ramp access from Como Parade
  • Suggestions of sustainability initiatives to implement within the project design
  • Requests for provision of a kiss and ride facility on Como Parade
  • Request to retain as much vegetation as possible to maintain the look and feel of the station.

All feedback submitted via this website has been considered by the project team during the determination of this project. This feedback is important to us and is kept in accordance with our privacy obligations (PDF, 43.86 KB).
