Towradgi Station Upgrade

Reviewed

Project overview

The NSW Government is improving accessibility at Towradgi Station.

This upgrade is part of the Transport Access Program, an initiative to provide a better experience for public transport customers by delivering modern, safe and accessible infrastructure.

As part of the program, the Towradgi Station Upgrade will provide a station that is accessible to those with a disability, limited mobility, carers/parents with prams and customers with luggage.

The project is expected to be completed in late 2022*.

Project Status

The contract for Towradgi Station Upgrade project was awarded in March 2021 and construction is underway. 

Work continuing through September includes:

  • excavating behind platforms 1 and 2 for future lift and stair construction
  • pouring concrete for bridge footings and retaining wall
  • installing rock anchors to stabilize the rock around the excavation works
  • installing electrical services
  • surveying the site.

Working hours

To support industry and continue the delivery of critical infrastructure, the NSW Government has amended the rules around operating hours on work sites. Sites are now able to operate seven days a week and on public holidays from 7am to 6pm. These changes allow work sites to support social distancing and the health and wellbeing of workers.

To make up for the delays caused by the COVID-19 restrictions that paused construction for two weeks in July, the Towradgi Station Upgrade will be using the extended hours and work will be taking place on Saturdays and Sundays until Sunday 12 September.

During the weekend of Saturday 11 September and Sunday 12 September, work will take place during a scheduled Sydney Trains trackwork period when no trains will be running, some staff may arrive before 6 am to signing in, to start COVID-19 safety checks and for pre-start meetings; construction work will not begin until after 7 am. All work is dependent on weather and site conditions and is subject to change.

*Estimated project completion times are subject to change.
