Site investigation work will start this weekend at Ingleburn Station with preparations now underway for the project that includes three new lifts, and improved station amenities, Ms Berejiklian said.

“The NSW Government is getting on with the job of delivering projects that will benefit customers right across the public transport network,” she said.

“The work this weekend at Ingleburn Station will help to develop design of the station upgrade, leading up to the start of major construction.

“Once the station upgrade is completed, Ingleburn customers will benefit from three new lifts, covered walkways from the lifts to the station platforms, upgraded bicycle storage, improved station amenities, kiss and ride zones and parking spaces for people with a disability.”

The upgrades will make it easier for customers to access public transport services from Ingleburn Station. The works are taking place during a planned rail closedown to allow for safe access to the rail corridor, she said.

Mr Doyle said the latest milestone in the project by the NSW Government will be welcomed by the local community.

“This is fantastic news for customers who are as excited as I am that this project is underway and will deliver improvements to their daily commute.

“I look forward to construction getting underway in coming months.”

The upgrade of Ingleburn Station is being delivered as part of the NSW Government’s $770 million Transport Access Program, an initiative to deliver modern, safe and accessible transport infrastructure where it is most needed.
