The Como Station upgrade we will be delivering, is another project from the Transport for NSW, Transport Access Program (TAP), an initiative to provide a better experience for public transport customers by delivering modern, safe and accessible infrastructure, especially to those with a disability, limited mobility, carers/parents with prams.
Site investigations and project planning is well underway and major work will start later in 2020. The project is expected to be completed by late 2021.
The Degnan Project Team are investigating some fantastic ideas to include the local community in the station’s new look and the aesthetic features surrounding the station, including artworks and local flora, and integrating some of the area’s indigenous history into the station’s design of the station.
