Harris Park Station to get lighting and new CCTV to boost access and security, lifts, family accessible toilets, improved customer information and way-finding signs

Member for Parramatta Geoff Lee today welcomed news that Harris Park Station will undergo a multi-million upgrade as part of a major boost to station access and parking across Western Sydney.

Geoff Lee said if the Baird Government is re-elected, Harris Park will be completely transformed with lift access for the first time – a big win for the elderly, customers with a wheelchair and families with prams.

“The station upgrade will include lifts, family accessible toilets, improved customer information, way-finding signs, lighting and new CCTV to boost access and security at the busy station,” Geoff said.

“Thousands of customers rely on train services from Harris Park every day to travel to the CBD, west to Penrith or Blacktown, and to employment hubs in Sydney’s south west. This upgrade is a huge win for Harris Park and if re-elected, work will start straight away to deliver this as quickly as possible for the local community.”

Geoff Lee said from day-one the government hit the ground running on public transport improvements and customers are now seeing the results.

“Labor’s record in Western Sydney was a disgrace – late-running trains were the norm, customer information was abysmal, electronic ticketing was a pipe-dream and customers were sweltering in non-air-conditioned trains,” he said.

“Thanks to the Baird Government public transport customers are now benefiting from cheaper and convenient travel with the Opal card, more than 12,000 extra weekly services, modern and air-conditioned trains and real-time apps.”

“We’re also delivering major upgrades at nearby Wentworthville Station to make the station accessible for the first time. Wentworthville Station will be upgraded with four new lifts, a new concourse area with information displays, as well as safety upgrades to stairs and repairs to the pedestrian footbridge,” added Geoff.
