Thirroul Platform Extension Project

What are we doing at Thirroul Station?

We are making the platforms longer at Thirroul 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 the southern end of Platforms 1, 2 and 3 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
  • improving safety on the platforms by upgrading lighting, closed circuit television, public announcement systems, tactile paving and line marking as required by the platform extension
  • realigning and installing new track, overhead wiring and signalling equipment so the new trains can operate safely and efficiently
  • raising the boundary fence at the southern end of Platform 1.

Construction update

As we approach the end of 2020, we are completing enabling work at Thirroul in preparation for major construction activities to being in December.

We have recently installed shade cloth around the perimeter of our work site which assists in preventing construction activities within the area from impacting the nearby environment.

We will be taking a two-week break from Saturday 19 December 2020, returning Monday 4 January 2021.

December is a busy month for our construction activities at Thirroul, where we will be working to install combined service routes in the rail corridor to protect and carry utility cables underground. This will improve the capacity of the rail system in the future. It is important preparation for more significant activities later in the month, when pipes will be laid underneath the rail tracks and a base structure will be installed inside the corridor to enable the introduction of new signals. This work will continue throughout January.

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.
