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, 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 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.

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.
