Normanhurst Station Upgrade
The NSW Government is improving accessibility at Normanhurst Station
Planning approval has been granted for an accessibility upgrade at Normanhurst Station as part of the NSW Government’s Transport Access Program. The approval follows the public display of the Review of Environmental Factors from 8 to 22 February 2021, and preparation of a Determination Report.
The Determination Report and planning approval conditions are available at www.transport.nsw.gov.au/normanhurst. The Transport for NSW project team would like to thank the community for their feedback during the planning process.
To help address community feedback in line with the mitigation measures identified in the Determination Report, the project team is currently investigating improvements to the station upgrade where feasible.
Transport for NSW is upgrading Normanhurst Station to make it easier for everyone to access public transport, including people with a disability or limited mobility, parents/carers with prams and customers with luggage.

- new kiss and ride zone on Denman Parade
- new accessible pedestrian pathways throughout the station and entrances

- new canopy coverage over Boarding Assistance Zones
- new bicycle hoops
- upgrades to bus stops on Denman Parade and Malsbury Road

- electrical upgrades to accommodate new infrastructure.
Upcoming site investigations
To help inform the detailed design for the station upgrade, underground site and tree root investigations are required to take place in and around the station. The investigations will be undertaken between 7am and 6pm from Monday 10 May until Friday 14 May 2021.
Tree trimming and removal will not occur as part of this work. All care will be taken with an independent arborist on site to assess the trees and monitor the work.
Equipment used will include cable scanner, work vehicles, surveying equipment and various hand and power tools.
