Minister for Transport Gladys Berejiklian announced a makeover of Town Hall Station, with customers to see new tiling, fresh paint and other upgrades at one of Sydney’s busiest stations.
The $8 million refurbishment of Town Hall is a Customer First initiative to deliver improvements right across the network, Ms Berejiklian said.
“This is the biggest change in 30 years,” Ms Berejiklian said.
“I’m pleased that the Town Hall makeover is now underway, on top of a wider station refresh program at 19 key stations across the network.”
Sydney Trains chief executive Howard Collins said the work at Town Hall is expected to be completed by the end of the year, and will be done outside of the busy peaks, overnight and during weekend possessions to reduce any impact on customers.
“The work includes around 8,000 square metres of new tiling on six platforms at Town Hall station, fresh paint, improved lighting and upgraded staircases.”
Work currently underway includes the painting of Platforms 1 and 2 and tiling works at the end of Platform 4.
On top of the improvements at Town Hall, a wider station refresh program is underway which will see around $20 million spent on improving a number of key stations this financial year.
The refresh work at a number of stations includes Martin Place, Bondi Junction, Blacktown, Burwood, Hurstville, Kogarah, Parramatta, Redfern, St Leonards and Strathfield.
Last year Circular Quay and Springwood stations received similar facelifts
