Australia's Transport for New South Wales (NSW) has received planning approval for a major upgrade of Panania railway station on the East Hills line.  

Following receipt of approval, the agency has released a tender for the design and construction of the project, with a contractor expected to appointed shortly.

Transport for NSW spokesperson said: “South-western Sydney customers are set to benefit from better transport facilities following the announcement that planning approval has been received for the Panania Station upgrade.

“The major upgrade to Panania Station includes three new lifts and stairs, a pedestrian footbridge, new canopies for weather protection, refurbishment to the heritage platform to include new toilet facilities, better signage, lighting and CCTV surveillance.

"The improvements will ensure that all our customers can easily access public transport."

“The improvements will ensure that all our customers, including people with disabilities, the elderly, passengers with prams or luggage and young children, can easily access public transport.” 

The upgrade will be delivered as part of the NSW Government’s transport access programme to deliver safe transport infrastructure.

The programme is already implemented by South West Sydney customers.

In June, Transport for NSW sought feedback from the community on proposed designs for the station upgrade.

On 21 December 1931, Panania opened when the line was extended from Kingsgrove to East Hills. On 9 December 1985, the line from Revesby to East Hills was duplicated with the laying of a new track north of the existing one.
