Unanderra Train Station Upgrade
The Unanderra Station upgrade is being delivering for Transport for NSW is one of many Transport Access Program (TAP) projects ongoing around NSW.
Construction is now underway with initial works happening in the existing station building and on the platform. This includes:
- Platform modifications, including new Boarding Assistance Zones
- New Family Accessible Toilet, Ambulant Toilet and Services Rooms
- Improved station power, services and communications
- Additional station lighting and closed-circuit television (CCTV)
Planning approvals are being finalised for the next stage of the station upgrade which will see the construction of a new footbridge in the centre of the platform.
The new footbridge will have:
- three connecting stairways and three new lifts.
- canopies over the footbridge and stairs for year-round shelter and customer comfort
- upgraded accessible car spaces
- new kiss and ride zones
- accessible paths at the station entrances
- a new pedestrian crossing to Berkeley Road west
- new closed circuit television cameras and lighting
Once the new footbridge and lifts are operational, the old footbridge will be removed.
It is anticipated the works will be open to the public in December 2022.
TAP projects ensure a better experience for public transport customers by delivering modern, safe, and accessible infrastructure, especially to those with a disability or limited mobility and carers/parents with prams and customers with luggage.
The Unanderra Station Upgrade is one of several projects within the Transport Access Program that is applying the ISCA IS V1.2 rating tool and is targeting an Excellent rating.
This will be achieved through setting targets across key issues such as climate change adaptation and resilience, energy and carbon reduction, waste to landfill reduction, materials selected, supply chain management, community connection, social procurement, and workforce inclusivity.
