Overview

The Point Clare 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 a disability, limited mobility or parents with prams and customers with luggage (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 include:

  • Provision of a new paved forecourt area around the station building entry;
  • 2 new lifts connecting each platform to the commuter car parks;
  • New ramp from Kurrawa Avenue Commuter Car Park to connect to the new lift;
  • New stairs from Kurrawa Avenue entry to the station underpass;
  • 2 new accessible parking spaces and 1 kiss and ride space in Brisbane Water Drive Commuter Car Park;
  • 1 new accessible parking space and 1 kiss and ride space in Kurrawa Avenue Commuter Car Park;
  • Upgrade to the existing toilets to provide a new family accessible toilet and a new unisex ambulant toilet;
  • Minor platform regrading;
  • Reconfigured bicycle parking on Brisbane Water Drive and Kurrawa Avenue;
  • Improvements to lighting, electricity supply, way-finding and security camera system (CCTV).

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
