Community feedback is being sought on plans for an accessibility upgrade at the Gunnedah train station.
The proposed upgrade is being delivered as part of the Transport Access Program – an initiative of the NSW Nationals in the state government – designed to provide more accessible, modern, secure, and integrated transport infrastructure across the state.
Key features of the proposed upgrade include accessible pathways and ramps, kiss and ride/accessible parking spaces, upgraded amenities and bus and coach parking facilities.
NSW Nationals Member for Tamworth Kevin Anderson said community feedback will help shape the upgrade, which will make it easier for everyone to access public transport services from the station.
“We want to make sure all our customers, including people with a disability, limited mobility, parents and carers with prams and travellers with luggage, can easily access Gunnedah station and its facilities both now and into the future,” Mr Anderson said.
“I invite all members of the community to have their say to ensure we deliver a station that meets the needs of people of all abilities and ages.
“We’ve already seen almost $600 million committed to TAP upgrades in regional NSW since 2011. Projects like these build on our vision to help make public transport a first-choice option for people living in the bush and build a safer, stronger regional NSW.”
Feedback on the early concept designs can be submitted until Monday, June 21 through the Transport NSW website or by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Subject to planning approval, the upgrade is expected to be completed next year.
