Transport Access Program 3 – Beecroft, Niagara Park, and Ourimbah Stations Upgrades

Project Details

  • Location: NSW
  • Stakeholders: Transport for NSW


The Beecroft, Niagara Park, and Ourimbah Stations upgrades are 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 a disability, 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.

Key benefits:


  • Two new lifts; a new platform canopy;
  • Reconfiguration of the family accessible toilet, improvements to accessible parking; upgraded footpaths;
  • Provision of a dedicated station services equipment room; improvements to CCTV, way-finding and lighting to improve safety and security;
  • Landscaping works and relocation of impacted artworks;
  • Heritage Interpretation within existing underpass.

Niagara Park

  • Three new lifts connecting the carparks, platform and pedestrian footbridge;
  • Bicycle hoops;
  • Kiss and ride spaces;
  • Permanent bus stop relocation;
  • A new footpath and new pedestrian crossing.


  • Two new lifts;
  • A new station entrance;
  • A new compliant access ramp;
  • A new undercover waiting area;
  • Provision of a new platform waiting area canopy;
  • Improved amenities including modifications to the existing Family Accessible Toilet and installation of hearing loops;
  • Lighting and CCTV for security and safety.

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 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.
