The Stanmore and Denistone 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 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.

- Regrading of the station underpass
- Regraded station entrance and concourse on Douglas Street
- Kiss and ride bay on Douglas Street

- Upgrades to both platform surfaces including the waiting rooms to provide accessible paths from the new lifts to the boarding assistance zones and station amenities
- Upgrade the existing stairs on both platforms with new compliant handrails

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
