Killara Station Upgrade


Project overview

The new accessibility features at Killara Station are now open. The upgrade was delivered as part of the Transport Access Program, an initiative to provide a better experience for passengers by delivering accessible, modern, secure and integrated transport infrastructure across the state.

The Transport Access Program provides stations that are accessible to people with a disability, limited mobility, parents/carers with prams and passengers with luggage.
