Overview

The Mittagong and Fairy Meadow Station upgrade is part of the third tranche of Transport for NSW’s Transport Access Program, known as TAP 3 and seeks to improve access to public transport for those with disability, those with limited mobility or parents with prams (TAP 3 | Transport for NSW). Providing accessible transport services for everyone in the community, is one of the six priorities for Transport for NSW’s Future Transport Strategy.

  • upgraded footpaths between the car park and station;
  • a new kiss and ride space;
  • a new Boarding Assistance Zones and hearing loops to both platforms;
  • removal of existing track level crossing:
  • and a new public art murals completed by a local artist with the assistance of local schools.

Mittagong Station

  • two new lifts;
  • improved amenities including ambulant toilets and a family accessible toilet;
  • upgraded CCTV and lighting for improved safety and security;
  • a new formal bus stop;
  • four upgraded accessible parking spaces and a kiss and ride space;
  • and a new traffic island to improve safety in Regent St forecourt.

TAP3 projects strive to achieve maximum social, economic and environmental outcomes and value for money. The approach to embedding sustainability on the TAP 3 program is to look at the main activities of the program and identify sustainability opportunities and outcomes.

While the scope of the TAP 3 program will focus on upgrades to meet Disability Standards for Accessible Public Transport (DSAPT) requirements, the upgrades may also facilitate the use of public transport by:

  • Enabling more people to transfer from using private vehicles to public transport by making stations more accessible;
  • Designing interchanges to enable people to access stations by sustainable and healthy modes such as walking and cycling and by bus;
  • Providing accessible parking at stations to enable trains to be used for most of the journey instead of driving the whole journey;
