Dubbo Railway Station is poised to undergo a transformative facelift, ensuring a safer, more accessible, and modern facility for all rail passengers, thanks to funding from the NSW Government’s Transport Access Program (TAP).
Member for the Dubbo electorate Dugald Saunders said the final design of the upgrade was crafted to meet the future needs of station users, incorporating valuable feedback from the community.
“The proposed design encompasses upgrades to existing paths surrounding the station precinct, the introduction of a new accessible ‘kiss and ride’ zone, and enhanced amenities, including ambulant toilets,” Mr Saunders said.
“Additionally, modifications to the waiting room and ticket counter will ensure a more comfortable and convenient experience for passengers.
“Other improvements include the installation of tactile indicators along the platform, upgraded lighting, and enhanced wayfinding elements.”
Commencing in June, the station upgrade project is slated for completion by the end of the year.
“Following a competitive tender award process, the Dubbo station upgrade will be led by North Construction, on behalf of Transport for NSW, and will support around 40 local jobs, providing a welcome boost to our local economy,” Mr Saunders said.
The NSW Government’s commitment to improving public transport infrastructure is reflected in the substantial investment of over $2.2 billion in upgrades since the inception of the Transport Access Program. Currently, more than 520 projects are either completed or underway across NSW.
