"I'm pleased to advise that the Review of Environmental Factors (REF) outlining the plans for the upgrade is now on display and open for feedback from the community," said Penrith MP Stuart Ayres.

"This upgrade to Lapstone Station will deliver a number of benefits that will make the station more accessible for all customers including people with a disability, limited mobility, parents and carers with prams and customers with luggage," he said.

"This is an opportunity for the Lapstone community to get involved and have their say on the plans for the upgrade

"Community members are also invited to meet with the Transport for NSW project team who will be onsite in the Platform 1 Waiting Room at Lapstone Station between 4pm and 6pm on Tuesday, November 12."

The key features proposed for the upgrade include a new lift connecting the footbridge to Platform 2, a new family accessible toilet, a new male ambulant toilet and a new female ambulant toilet, upgrades to the accessible car space and a new kiss and ride bay, upgrades to the ramp connecting the commuter car park to the station footbridge, accessibility upgrades to the station Waiting Room, and improvements to station pathways, stairs, and platforms.

The REF is available for viewing at the station and at Blaxland Library at 33 Hope Street, Blaxland, or online at: https://www.transport.nsw.gov.au/projects/current-projects/lapstone-station-upgrade
