Hurstville Crossover Project

Program overview

Over the next ten years the More Trains, More Services program will simplify and modernise the rail network, creating turn up and go services for many customers.

What are we doing at Hurstville?

To contribute to an improved rail network, track work will be done near Hurstville Station to install a rail crossover.

A crossover is a section of rail that connects two parallel tracks, allowing trains to cross over from one track to another. This will mean that local services on the Country side can end their journey at Platform 4 at Hurstville Station, then start their return service to the city.

Modifications include:

  • approximately 100 metres of track work including new overhead wire structures
  • new signalling infrastructure
  • modifications to existing overhead wire structures
  • modifications to existing drainage structures
  • modifications to an existing combined services route for signalling infrastructure.

Project update

A Review of Environmental Factors (REF) was prepared and community feedback invited from 30 October to 13 November 2019. We would like to thank the community for their feedback, which will help further develop the project.

The feedback received was considered as part of the planning approval process and has been responded to in a Determination Report.

Next steps

The main construction works will commence mid-2020 and take approximately one year to complete. We will keep the community updated once a contractor is appointed.

Every effort will be made to minimise any construction impacts to the local community. We will continue to keep the community informed about upcoming activities through regular updates.
