NSW parents are being urged to put away their mobile phones and keep a firm hold of their child's hand to avoid trips and slips at train stations this Easter long-weekend.
NSW Minister for Transport and Infrastructure Andrew Constance says the number of injuries suffered by kids who have slipped through the gap between the train and station platforms has risen from 72 to 81 over the year 2015-16.
"We've got school holidays and the Easter Show upon us, and with packed trains and excited kids it's more important than ever to be keeping an eye on children," Mr Constance said on Tuesday.
He said smartphones also play a significant role in distracting passengers around train stations.
"We've seen plenty of incidents where people are concentrating on their mobile phones instead of paying attention to oncoming trains, adding to the number of slips, trips, and falls on station platforms," Mr Constance said.
