Over the next 10 years the More Trains, More Services program will transform Sydney’s busiest train lines with more services through digital systems, infrastructure upgrades, and more new trains.
As part of the MTMS works, to accommodate changes to operations of the T4 line, station upgrades are required to ensure customers receive an increased level of safety and comfort, one of the major features of the upgrades included extending the platform canopy to enable better passenger spread along the platform, to reduce dwell times and improve timetable reliability.
The canopy extensions on platforms 3 and 4 have been completed. The canopy had been extended to cover almost the entire length of Platform 3 and 4.
In addition to this more CCTV and lighting has been installed for improved commuter and passenger safety. Additional digital information boards and upgraded passenger announcement system is up and running to keep customers informed about departing train services in real time.
More customer seating has been installed along the platform to increase weather protection and encourage customers to use the full length of the platform, reducing crowding at busy times.
Degnan in line with Heritage NSW conditions and requirements have extended the platform canopies at Arncliffe Station on platform 3 and 4, these new canopies have been constructed to encourage commuters to use the full length of the platform in all weather conditions, to ease platform congestions during busy times.
In addition to the canopy extension, additional seating and CCTV, lighting and public announcement systems and digital information boards have been installed.
