Help has arrived for commuters who rely on Blacktown railway station’s lifts.
A major refurbishment will result in four of the station’s 10 lifts being replaced at a cost of $3 million.
The project also includes lighting improvements, the painting of doorways, walls and walkways, deep cleaning and minor repair works like replacing tiles.
Transport Minister Gladys Berejiklian said last week that work would start soon on replacing the first of the lifts.
She said it formed part of a wider station refresh program which would see around $20 million spent on improving a number of key stations this financial year.
‘‘The work includes replacing fluorescent lighting with more efficient LED lighting, painting, repair work and refreshing the toilet facilities,’’ Ms Berejiklian said..
‘‘This work, together with the lift replacements, which will improve their reliability, will result in customers enjoying much improved facilities at the station.’’
The outdated hydraulic lifts will be replaced with state-of-the-art airconditioned electric lifts which are wheelchair-friendly and include braille signage.
Alternative lift access between the bus interchange and footbridge will be available while the upgrades are under way and customers are advised to follow signs around the station.
