Project status

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

Thank you to everyone who provided feedback during the community consultation period during June and July. The submission period is now closed, and information about the feedback we received and how it was considered can be found in the project Determination Report. Stakeholders who provided feedback will receive a letter with further information about their submission.

Project history

The Review of Environmental Factors (REF), was on public display from Friday 28 June to Monday 22 July 2019. The REF and supporting documentation were available for viewing at the Southern Highlands Welcome Centre, Mittagong Public Library, the Transport for NSW Chatswood office, and digitally on this web page. 

Members from the project team met with local community members at an information session on Saturday 29 June 2019. Thank you to everyone who provided feedback at this session, your submissions will help Transport for NSW understand what is important to customers and the community, and will help inform further design.

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
  • requests for the upgrade to progress as quickly as possible
  • requests for additional station infrastructure to be included as part of the Mittagong Station Upgrade, including additional drinking fountains, seating and shelter, and louder announcements
  • requests for more commuter parking, including motorcycle parking
  • requests to upgrade pedestrian paths and lighting along adjoining streets
  • requests for heritage preservation
  • request for smart technology
  • requests for more train services, for an extension of opening hours for station facilities and for minimising the distance between the trains and platforms.

Respondents who have provided contact details will receive notification from Transport for NSW including information about how their feedback was considered.

All feedback relating to items outside of the Transport Access Program scope of work will be distributed to the most appropriate NSW Government agency, associate of official body for consideration. This feedback is important to us and will be kept in accordance with our privacy obligations (PDF, 438.6 KB) (PDF, 43.86 KB).
