The Como Station Upgrade project is registered under the Infrastructure Sustainability Council of Australia’s (ISCA) IS Rating Scheme to drive sustainability outcomes for the station. The project is planned to achieve an Excellent rating for ‘Design’ and ‘As-Built’ under the scheme by optimising governance, economic, environmental and social performance for the whole of life of the asset.
The project’s application for a ‘Design’ Rating will be submitted to ISCA for verification and we will be working towards achieving the final ‘As-Built’ rating after project completion.

The NSW Government is improving accessibility at Como Station.
The 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, Como Station will be upgraded to 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 by late 2021.
The Degnan Project Team is exploring some innovative and exciting ideas to involve the local community in the development of the station’s new aesthetic features and delivery of the project. Degnan is committed to improving community health and wellbeing, and the team is looking forward to offering new opportunities at Como Station.
