Arncliffe Station Platform Canopy Extension

Program Overview

As part of the More Trains, More Services program, construction is underway to extend the platform canopy at Arncliffe Station.

The extended canopy will increase weather protection and encourage customers to use the full length of the platform, reducing crowding at busy times.

Work we are doing to improve the station for customers and our staff:

  • extending the canopy to cover almost the entire length of Platform 3 and 4
  • additional CCTV and lighting for improved safety and security
  • more customer seating along the platform
  • additional digital information boards and PA system to keep customers informed about departing train services in real time.

Project Update

During October, platform work continued with drainage being installed on the platform, and the brick planter boxes were started. Electrical and cabling work in the station building continued.

During December the project team will carry out the following activities:

  • relocating station furniture
  • installation of a glass canopy roof on the platform
  • resurfacing asphalt sections of the platform
  • station services installation will continue
  • bird proofing the new canopy.

Some construction work will take place outside of these hours between:

5am Saturday 13 November through to 10pm Sunday 14 November

This work will take place during a scheduled Sydney Trains trackwork period when no trains will be running. Scheduling construction work outside of standard construction hours enables our project team to complete essential activities safely. There will be signage directing people to alternative transport. All work is dependent on weather and site conditions and is subject to change.

Keep in touch

We will continue to keep the community informed throughout construction with regular notifications being distributed to the community and frequent updates published here on the website.
