Kiama Platform Extension Project

What are we doing at Kiama Station?

We are making the platforms longer at Kiama Station to make it easier for customers to board and alight the New Intercity Fleet. The new 10-car trains will provide an improved level of comfort and convenience for intercity customers. For more information please visit our New Intercity Fleet page.

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

  • extending both ends of Platforms 1 and 2 by about eight metres to accommodate the longer fleet of intercity trains and provide access for customers to all carriages of the train
  • relocating the platform fences, stairs and gates to the end of the newly extended platforms
  • realigning and installing new overhead wiring and signalling equipment so that the new trains can operate safely and efficiently
  • improving safety on the platforms by upgrading lighting, closed circuit television, the passenger announcement systems, tactile paving and line marking as required by the platform extension.

Next steps

We are continuing to deliver projects across New South Wales while ensuring the safety of all staff and the community. In line with current Australian Government guidelines around slowing the spread of Coronavirus and social distancing, all work will be carried out at a safe physical distance where possible and necessary hygiene practices will be observed.

Preliminary site investigations will be undertaken in August to further inform the technical design for this work.

In the coming months site compounds will be established to enable the start of construction work.
