Petersham Station Upgrade


Project overview

The upgrade at Petersham Station is being delivered as part of the Transport Access Program, a NSW Government initiative to provide a better experience for public transport customers by delivering accessible, modern, secure and integrated transport infrastructure across the state. As part of the program, the Petersham Station Upgrade will provide a station precinct that is accessible to those with a disability, limited mobility, parents/carers with prams and customers with luggage.

  • a new access ramp and stairs from the Trafalgar Street station entrance to the existing footbridge
  • upgrade work to the existing footbridge and stairs
  • a new accessible parking space adjacent to the Terminus Street lift
  • a formalised kiss and ride area on Terminus Street
  • new bicycle parking on both sides of the station
  • improved amenities such as new male and female ambulant toilet, a new family accessible toilet, CCTV and lighting.


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