Planning will soon start on a new project to improve accessibility and safety for customers at Moss Vale station, creating around 50 local jobs.
Member for Goulburn Wendy Tuckerman said project planning will now progress to make it easier for all customers, including people with a disability, to access public transport services from the station.
“An upgrade like this at Moss Vale Station will help ensure it can meet the needs of our customers both now and into the future.”
“We’re excited this project is now a step closer because we know it will make a real difference to locals once complete, but will also create about 50 local jobs across engineering, design, construction and administration during construction.”
“In addition to the Moss Vale upgrade, the $2.7 million accessibility upgrade to Goulburn Station is due to begin in the coming weeks with site preparation work – prior to the major construction starting next month,” Mrs Tuckerman said.
The Goulburn upgrade will deliver improvements to the station’s entrance, new ambulant toilets and upgraded accessible parking spaces, as well as improved lighting and wayfinding, path upgrades, new kerb ramps, upgrades to the waiting room and ticket counter and accessible help points.
The station will remain open for all customers while work progresses and regular services will continue and is expected to be completed in mid-2021.
Minister for Regional Transport and Roads Paul Toole said the upgrades are being delivered thanks to an additional $112 million in the 2020-21 NSW Budget as part of the Transport Access Program, with a further $80 million to progress future upgrades.
“Upgrades like these ensure that stations have the amenities to support growth in public transport, and build upon our vision to make public transport a first choice for everyone living in the regions,” Mr Toole said.
“The station upgrades will create about 600 jobs right across regional NSW, with contractors looking to engage local suppliers where possible.”
More than $2 billion has been committed to the Transport Access Program since 2011, with more than 470 projects either completed or currently underway across NSW.
