THE opening of new lifts at Narwee Station has marked the completion of 400 NSW Government projects to make transport infrastructure more safe, modern and accessible.
Premier Gladys Berejiklian said this "significant milestone" for station upgrades, delivered seven months ahead of schedule, shows the NSW Government's commitment to making public transport accessible for all customers.
"Since its launch in 2011, this Government has invested more than $1 billion in the Transport Access Program," Ms Berejiklian said.
"These crucial upgrades, which range from new lifts, ramps and stairs, new footbridges, improved CCTV, weather canopies, kiss and ride zones, bike lockers and more, will support the growing amount of customers accessing public transport."
Minister for Transport and Infrastructure Andrew Constance said customers at Narwee can now use the fully accessible station well ahead of schedule.
"There is still a lot of work ahead of us, and 2018 will see us cracking on with even more station upgrades," Mr Constance said.
State MP for Oatley Mark Coure said the station upgrade was a great result for local transport customers.
"I am excited that this project was delivered seven months early, meaning customers can now use the new lift and family accessible toilet, find shelter under the weather protection canopies and feel safer knowing there is upgraded lighting and surveillance," he said.
