Member of the Legislative Council and Blue Mountains resident Shayne Mallard MP yesterday opened a new lift and upgraded facilities at Leura Station making it easier for people with a disability, parents with prams and tourists with luggage to travel on the picturesque Blue Mountains Line.

Delivered under the NSW Government’s Transport Access Program, an initiative to provide safe, modern and accessible public transport infrastructure across the state, customers will notice a range of improvements at Leura station.

“Along with the lift, the existing station buildings have been upgraded with new accessible toilet facilities,” said Mr Mallard.

“There is also a new access ramp for commuters to enter the station from a designated taxi and kiss and ride zone, making it easier for customers to use different modes of transport.”

“New canopies over the stairs and part of the platform provide shelter from the weather, while safety is increased, with improved lighting and CCTV surveillance. A new footpath and taxi shelter have been built on Railway Parade. “These features will help service the Blue Mountains community now and into the future, with more people expected to call Leura and surrounds home in coming years. The changes also cater for the thousands of tourists who visit the town’s scenic attractions, hotels and restaurants on public transport each year.”

“Careful planning goes into each station upgrade and at Leura we worked closely with the Leura community and heritage specialists to ensure the design was in keeping with historic features and character of the station.”

The NSW Government recently announced 400 projects have been delivered since the launch of the $1 billion Transport Access Program in 2011, with many more underway or in the planning stages.

Wentworth Falls on the Blue Mountains Line was also recently upgraded and plans for a lift are underway for Glenbrook Station.
