Project Award for Beecroft, Niagara Park and Ourimbah Station Upgrades
We are delighted to advise that Gartner Rose has been appointed by Transport for NSW to undertake the Design and Construction of upgrades to Beecroft, Ourimbah and Niagara Park stations, to be delivered as part of the Transport Access Program (TAP). The Transport Access Program is 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.
The upgrades will provide station precincts that are accessible to those with a disability, limited mobility, parents/carers with prams and customers with luggage. Each station will undergo the following:
- Beecroft Station – customers at Beecroft will benefit from two lifts, one from Wongala Crescent to the station underpass, and the other to the station platforms. Additional benefits include an improved access to the existing family accessible toilet, improvements to footpaths and accessible parking, and enhanced CCTV, lighting and wayfinding signage.
- Ourimbah Station – the project will see the station entrance upgraded and the installation of two new lifts to connect the platforms to Pacific Highway and the commuter car park. Further work will include new stairs and access ramps to the station, upgrades to power, amenities, lighting, wayfinding and security.
- Niagara Park Station – the main activities include the installation of three new lifts to connect the platforms and both commuter car parks to the existing footbridge as well as upgrades to the station entrance. Further work will include a new kiss and ride to the commuter car parks, new accessible pedestrian footpaths and crossings as well as upgrades to power, lighting, security and wayfinding.
All projects are expected to be completed in 2022.
The projects will compliment our recent station upgrade projects as part of the Transport Access Program at Wyee and Waratah stations.
We look forward to a safe and successful project.
