Member for Parramatta Dr Geoff Lee recently announced the tender process to deliver a major access upgrade at Wentworthville, with Registrations of Interest for design and construction opening next week.
The upgrade is being delivered as part of the NSW Government’s $770 million Transport Access Program, an initiative to deliver accessible, modern, secure and integrated transport infrastructure where it is needed most.
Mr Lee said these improvements will make catching public transport more accessible for locals, especially older people, people with a disability and parents with prams.
“I was proud to give my full support to the business community and local residents and will continue to advocate strongly on their behalf for this upgrade”.
“Since the station was identified for an upgrade last year, site investigation and concept designs have been underway.
“An Industry Briefing has been held today and Registrations of Interest will open next week, on Monday 4 August for contractors to design and construct the project.
“Community consultation will begin next year and be closely followed by construction.
“The improvements to be delivered at Wentworthville include new lifts and stairs from Wentworth Avenue and The Kingsway, a widened footbridge between platforms and upgrades to lighting and CCTV.
“The NSW Government is getting on with delivering better transport infrastructure for Western Sydney.”
The project is part of a new $150 million investment to upgrade six key Western Sydney Stations, including Penrith, Pendle Hill, Blacktown, Wentworth Falls, Wentworthville and Flemington.
