Stuart Ayres MP, Member for Penrith announced on Friday that the new look Lapstone Station opened, 6 months ahead of schedule, featuring improved safety and accessibility for public transport customers.

“I am delighted that for the first time Lapstone Station is fully accessible to all customers, including those with limited mobility,” Stuart Ayres said.

“Around $7.7 million was invested into the improvements, which were delivered under the NSW Government’s Transport Access Program.

“Customers now have access to a new lift, upgrades to the accessible car parking spaces, new ambulant male and female toilets, accessible family amenities and security and safety has been increased with improved CCTV and lighting.

“As part of the upgrade, the NSW Government has also created a new station entrance and improved accessibility to the platform waiting room,” Stuart Ayres said.

As well as accessibility improvements, the station upgrade created around 50 jobs during planning and construction.

“I would like to thank the local community and our customers for their support while work was completed. It is exciting that we now have an upgraded station that everyone can benefit from.

“Upgrades like this ensure that people of all ages and abilities can access public transport, no matter where they live,” Stuart Ayres said.

The NSW Government has committed more than $2.2 billion to the Transport Access Program since 2011.
