Historic station set for million-dollar upgrade
Updated: Oct 12, 2020
Armidale's station is set to undergo a $1.18 million dollar glow up.
Northern Tablelands MP Adam Marshall today announced the funding will be used to improve safety and accessibility at Armidale’s 137-year-old railway station.
Upgrades to the station include additional lighting on platforms and CCTV cameras.
Mr Marshall said the upgrade would make it easier for all travellers, including people with a disability, to access public transport services from the station.
“Existing footpaths will be stabilised to improve pedestrian access while car spaces and the kiss and ride area will be extended to make for smoother pick-ups and drop-offs," said Mr Marshall.
The new works are set to commence in July and the project expects to employ 30 local tradies.
The funding is part of a state government funding initiative that commenced in 2011.
