Community Consultation Begins for Roseville Station Upgrades
Jonathan O’Dea, Member for Davidson today invited locals to have their say about a proposed accessibility upgrade at Roseville Station.
Following flyers distributed at the station and to nearby residents, there will be a community information stall on 5 February from 4-6pm at Roseville Station with Jonathan O’Dea and the Transport for NSW project team.
“I am excited that Roseville Station will be made more accessible for clients with a disability, those with limited mobility, parents and carers with prams, as well as travellers with luggage,” Mr O’Dea said.
“I encourage everyone to provide feedback on the proposed design. This will help Transport for NSW develop planning documents before further consultation later this year.”
The benefits of the proposed station upgrade include:
- A new footbridge to replace the older existing footbridge
- A new ramp to provide access between the Pacific Highway and the new footbridge
- Two new lifts and stairways to provide access between Hill Street, the new footbridge and the station platform
- A new family accessible toilet
- New accessible pathways throughout the station precinct
- An interchange zone which includes accessible parking, taxi zone and kiss and ride on Hill Street
- Improvements to CCTV and lighting to increase safety and security.
Subject to planning approval, construction will commence in 2020 and take up to two years to complete.
The Roseville Station upgrade is part of the NSW Government’s Transport Access Program, an initiative to provide safe, modern and accessible transport infrastructure across the state.
