Project status

Construction has started at Thornleigh Station and is progressing to deliver greater  accessibility to the station for all users.

We have made changes to how you access, Thornleigh Station with the extended closure of the Benowie Walkway to April 2022, this will enable work for the new lifts and stairs to be conducted safely.

Up to two car parking spaces on Railway Parade, next to the café will be unavailable until April 2022. This is to allow for machinery to access the work zone safely.

We apologise in advance for any inconvenience these changes may cause and thank you and the community for your patience while we deliver the upgrades to Thornleigh Station.
