John Holland to upgrade four Sydney stations

John Holland has been awarded a contract worth more than $50m by Transport for New South Wales (TfNSW) to upgrade train stations at Pendle Hill, Wentworthville, Croydon and Blacktown in Sydney.

The works will make the stations more accessible, and includes:
• Relocation of railway systems and services
• Removal of an existing footbridge
• Refurbishment of existing heritage structures
• Installation of new lifts at three of the four sites
• Construction of new pedestrian overpasses
• Provision of sheltered bicycle racks
• Relocation of an existing memorial and memorial fountain.

Executive General Manager for Infrastructure, Jim Salmon, said the work will be a significant improvement for local communities.

“The station upgrades will be welcomed in particular by those members of the community that are unable to use stairs, which are still the only means of access to a large number of station platforms in Sydney,” he said.

“It’s exciting to be part of such a positive upgrade and to continue our long association with TfNSW.”

Construction will start later in the year.
