Reviewed

Project overview

A new purpose-built train maintenance facility is being built at Kangy Angy on the NSW Central Coast.

The facility will service and maintain the new fleet of Intercity trains and includes offices, amenities, staff parking and ancillary buildings.

The detailed design and construction of the new facility is being delivered by John Holland on behalf of Transport for NSW.

Project status

The NSW Government is delivering a New Intercity Fleet to replace the trains carrying customers from Sydney to the Central Coast, Newcastle, the Blue Mountains and the South Coast.

To service and maintain the new fleet, a purpose-built train maintenance facility is being built at Kangy Angy. A contract has been awarded to John Holland for the detailed design and construction of the new maintenance facility. The facility includes offices, amenities, staff parking and ancillary buildings as well as flood free access for local residents via a new bridge that will connect Enterprise Drive to Orchard Road. 

New Intercity Fleet Maintenance Facility urban design update

The urban design and public domain plan for the Maintenance Facility provides the community with information about the location of buildings, roads and parking areas within the Maintenance Facility site, as well as the proposed designs for site buildings.

The urban design plans aim to integrate the facility into the existing landscape, using natural finishes like timber and rock, as well as native vegetation to blend with the local surroundings.

Determination Report and Combined Submissions Report

During 2016, the Review of Environmental Factors, Species Impact Statement and the Environment Protection Biodiversity and Conservation Act 1999 preliminary documentation were placed on public display and feedback from the community was invited. In 2017, the Additional Species Impact Statement was publically exhibited and feedback was received. Transport for NSW would like to thank the community for their submissions.

This feedback received was considered as part of the planning approval process and has been responded to in a Determination Report (PDF, 6.02 MB) and Combined Submissions Report (PDF, 13.14 MB) which are now available to view.

Ongoing community consultation

We acknowledge that there will be impacts to the community. 
In accordance with the project’s conditions of approval, Transport for NSW and John Holland will employ a range of mitigation measures to minimise impacts on nearby properties during the construction and operation of the maintenance facility.

We will continue to keep the local community informed as the project progresses.
