Waterfall Stabling Yard and Platform Extension Project

Program overview

Over the next ten years the More Trains, More Services program will roll out world class technology to transform the rail network and provide customers with more reliable, high capacity turn up and go services. The next stage of work will deliver improvements to the T4 Illawarra, T8 Airport and South Coast lines.

What are we doing at Waterfall Station?

To contribute to an improved rail network Waterfall Station will be upgraded, including a new stabling yard for additional trains and rail works within the corridor to improve passenger and freight services.
The works at Waterfall will increase the number of train services along the line, allow longer trains to stop at Waterfall and improve the way freight and passenger services travel through the rail network.

Modifications include:

• platform extension to cater for 10-car New Intercity Fleet trains
• new staff amenities building
• elevated staff access bridge between staff amenities building and the station platform
• track modifications including extension of the existing freight refuge loop
• new tracks for train stabling of ten 8-carriage trains
• new power supply upgrade to replace existing electrical infrastructure that is nearing the end of its lifecycle
• a new retaining wall along the widened rail corridor boundary to increase safety
• ancillary works including new and relocated services, lighting, CCTV, and landscaping.

Project update

A Review of Environmental Factors (REF) was prepared and community feedback invited from 23 August to 6 September 2019. We would like to thank the community for their feedback, which will help further develop the project.

Next steps

Feedback received in response to the REF will be considered in a Determination Report. The report will be prepared by Transport for NSW and we will let the community know as soon as it is available to view.

Construction will only start once all approvals have been finalised and a determination on the Project has been made by Transport for NSW.

  • CLOSED: This survey has concluded.
    The REF is on public display from Friday 23 August to Friday 6 September 2019. Feedback received during the public display will assist Transport for NSW to understand what is important to the community. It will also assist in preparing plans for managing impacts during construction.

    Results of the planning process will be published in a Determination Report in the coming months. This report will allow you to see how your feedback has been considered in the planning process.
