UPGRADES COMPLETED AT COFFS HARBOUR STATION
Coffs Harbour Station’s transformation has been completed with improvements to the access ramp and transport interchange amongst the new changes, the Member for Coffs Harbour, Andrew Fraser, announced today.
The station is part of the NSW Government’s $1 billion Transport Access Program to deliver modern, safe and accessible infrastructure across the state.
“Customers will really notice the difference coming in and out of the station particularly with the access ramp, which has been widened to makes it easier for our less mobile customers to use,” Mr Fraser said.
“Improving access to the station has been a priority since construction began last November, so it’s great to be able to show the end results.”
Mr Fraser said other improvements include changing the layout to the Angus McLeod Place to facilitate the new ramp and a dedicated pick-up and drop-off zone for public vehicles.
There is also two additional accessible parking space to assist less mobile customers.
The improvements have been made to encourage more people to use public transport and ensure they feel safe when they do so.
“I think local residents and visitors to Coffs Harbour Station will really appreciate the work that has gone into making the station more modern, cleaner, and safer to customers.”
The NSW Government has successfully upgraded a number stations across the state since the Transport Access Program began in 2012.
Upgrades to Albury, Wagga Wagga, Tamworth and Orange stations have also been completed.
