Thirroul Platform Extension Project

What are we doing at Thirroul Station?

We’re 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, convenience and reliability for intercity customers and will be introduced progressively starting with the Central Coast and Newcastle Line later this year, followed by the Blue Mountains Line and the South Coast Line.

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 trains
  • moving the platform fences, adding new access stairs and new gates at the end of the newly extended platforms, to improve access for customers and staff
  • improving safety on the platforms by upgrading lighting, closed circuit television, the passenger announcement system, tactile paving and line marking
  • 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.

Next steps

Preliminary site investigations will be undertaken 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.

Extended Construction Hours

To support the industry and continue the delivery of critical infrastructure, the NSW Government has introduced new rules allowing construction sites to operate on weekends and public holidays.

Standard construction hours are now 7am to 6pm every day, including public holidays.

These changes have been made to make sure we can keep our work sites safe through social distancing and support the health and wellbeing of our workers.

The project team understands extending construction hours to weekends and public holidays may cause disruption for the community but all efforts will be made to minimise impacts where possible and ensure strict environmental conditions relating to noise, vibration and dust management are adhered to.
