Mortdale Maintenance Centre Upgrade

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 Mortdale Maintenance Centre?

An upgrade at Mortdale Maintenance Centre (MMC) will increase the capacity for maintenance of Tangara suburban trains, allowing the entire Tangara fleet to be serviced from this location. This work will reduce dead running time by locating maintenance of the Tangara fleet near to where the trains operate.

Upgrades include:

  • extension of the existing MMC driveway entrance and construction of a new driveway exit on the western side of the facility
  • installation of a new electrical substation adjacent to the eastern boundary and decommissioning of the existing substation at the eastern boundary
  • upgrades to the MMC sheds to allow for the Tangara fleet to be serviced from this location
  • civil work including track modifications, drainage upgrades, new retaining walls, associated electrical works and lighting.

Project update

Planning approval has been granted for this project. Thank you to everyone who provided feedback on the Review of Environmental Factors during consultation undertaken in October and November last year. Your feedback was considered in the planning approval process. All submissions received were addressed in the Determination Report which outlines the issues raised and the planning approval conditions to be adhered to by the project.

Next steps

We are continuing to deliver projects across NSW 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.

Activities being undertaken in June and July include:

  • temporary site establishment inside the MMC
  • geotechnical and utility investigations along Hurstville Road
  • survey work.

Traffic control will be in place to assist pedestrians and motorists with any temporary access changes along Hurstville Road.
