Doonside Station Upgrade


Project overview

The NSW Government is improving accessibility at Doonside Station.

The upgrade at Doonside Station is being delivered as part of the Transport Access Program, an initiative to provide a better experience for public transport customers by delivering accessible, modern, secure and integrated transport infrastructure across the state.

The upgrade will provide a station precinct that is accessible to those with a disability, limited mobility, parents and carers with prams and customers with luggage.

The project is expected to be completed in 2023*.
