Banksia Station Upgrade delivers improved Access

The $26 million upgrade to Banksia Station is now open to the public, delivering improved safety and accessibility for commuters.

The upgrade has been delivered as part of the Transport Access Program (TAP), an initiative to create safe, modern and accessible public transport infrastructure.

Member for Oatley, Mark Coure said, this upgrade has significantly improved accessibility for all customers, especially people with a disability, limited mobility, parents or carers with prams and anyone with luggage.

“This upgrade is a significant improvement for Banksia Station, and will make it easier for all commuters to access public transport,” Mr Coure said.

“Work has also included the completion of a spectacular mural that celebrates the history of Banksia Station, painted by artist Danielle Mate.”

“We want to ensure every commuter in the Banksia area has easy access to public transport and this is certainly a significant improvement for them.

“I would like to thank the Banksia community for their patience while this upgrade was completed, and I look forward to seeing them making great use of the new facilities.”

The upgrade includes:

  • three new lifts to access the station platforms
  • a new kiss and ride area and accessible parking space on Hattersley Street
  • upgrades to CCTV, lighting and signage
  • new easy access toilets and a family accessible toilet
  • additional platform canopy coverage on platforms 2, 3 and 4.

The NSW Government has committed more than $2.2 billion to the Transport Access Program since 2011.
