New-look Wyee Station officially opened
19th August 2020
NSW Minister for Transport Andrew Constance and Lake Macquarie MP Greg Piper will officially open the new-look Wyee Railway Station this morning.
The upgrade includes three new lifts which provide access to the overhead footbridge and platforms, new pathways and entrances on both sides of the station, along with accessibility upgrades to bathrooms and waiting rooms.
The project, which was completed and operational last month ahead of schedule, also included the construction of additional parking spaces and a drop-off zone on the Gorokan Road side.
“Wyee Station has become a much busier station than it used to be,” Mr Piper said.
“While it will serve the growing local population in Wyee, it’s also the nearest station for people in the northern parts of the Central Coast and those who live on the south-eastern side of Lake Macquarie.
“This upgrade will provide much easier access not just for disabled, frail or aged people who struggle with stairs, but also for parents with prams and travellers carrying luggage.
“The safety of passengers has also been improved with the installation of better lighting, CCTV and security.
“I want to thank Minister Constance and the NSW Government for listening to us and investing in much-needed infrastructure in Lake Macquarie, especially in Wyee where so much is happening.”
Minister Andrew Constance said the project was delivered through the NSW Government’s Transport Access Program which has or is funding about 450 projects across NSW, collectively worth more than $2 billion.
