Businesses and suppliers in the region are being encouraged to help design and build a local train station upgrade to improve accessibility and safety for customers.
Member for the Dubbo electorate Dugald Saunders said the upgrade at Dubbo Train Station is one of nine announced under the latest round of the NSW Government’s Transport Access Program (TAP), which makes it easier for all customers, including people with a disability, to access public transport services.
“These TAP upgrades will create about 650 jobs right across regional parts of the state, injecting about $23 million directly into local economies,” Mr Saunders said.
“Here in Dubbo, the project will create jobs and will be a huge boost for the region during these challenging times. We are seeking a variety of goods, services and materials for these upgrades, so I hope that local businesses register their interest and get involved.”
The upgrades include things like:
- accessible pathways and ramps
- tactiles on the platforms and targeted locations throughout the station
- kiss and ride/accessible parking spaces
- upgrading amenities including waiting rooms and ticket offices, seating, and accessible/ambulant toilet facilities
- bus and coach parking facilities
