Pendle Hill Station Upgrade and Commuter Car Park

Commuter Car Park

Concept plans for a commuter car park at Pendle Hill Station, which would provide around 125 additional spaces, are now complete. 

A Review of Environmental Factors for the commuter car park is expected to be placed on public display and feedback invited from the community later this year.

Station Upgrade

Transport for NSW is making changes at Pendle Hill Station to improve access for customers.

The project includes:

  • Four new lifts
  • A new station concourse and footbridge
  • New stairs and platform canopies
  • A family accessible toilet.

As part of this upgrade, the existing station footbridge will be partially demolished including the complete removal of the existing ramps to Joyce Street and Wentworth Avenue.

Current works

  • Construction activities in May and June

    Over the coming months you may notice the following activities on site:

    • Installation of structural steel 
    • Installation of roofing and canopies on Joyce Street stairs and concourse
    • Continued upgrade works on station buildings
    • Excavation works for electrical services along Joyce Street and Wentworth Avenue footpaths 
    • Road, footpath and pavement upgrades along Wentworth Avenue and Joyce Street 
    • Tree trimming and removal along Joyce Street

    Works on Joyce Street lift shaft and stairs

    In May and June 2017 finishing works on the Joyce Street lift shaft and stairs will continue. These works will include concrete works and installation of cladding. To safely carry out these activities, parking maybe temporarily removed for short periods on Pendle Way. Additionally, the taxi stand located on Joyce Street opposite the station may need to be temporary relocated to Pendle Way. Signage will be installed in advance of any traffic and taxi changes with traffic controllers on duty to assist pedestrian and vehicle movements.
