Waitara Station Upgrade


Project overview

The NSW Government is improving accessibility at Waitara Station.

This upgrade will be delivered as 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 Waitara Station Upgrade will provide a station precinct 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 2022*.

Have your say

Following consultation with key stakeholders, a concept design has been developed.

Until Wednesday 7 October, the project team is seeking community feedback on the concept design. All feedback received will be reviewed and used to progress the planning approval documentation.

Under normal circumstances Transport for NSW would hold community information sessions at the station.

We regret that due to the COVID-19 social distancing measures, we can’t. We are still available by phone and email and look forward to hearing your questions and feedback that way.

Feedback can be provided by filling out the feedback form below, emailing projects@transport.nsw.gov.au or by calling the Project Infoline on 1800 684 490.

Further information about the concept design and engagement process can be found in the community notification below.
