Design and construction upgrade of the existing station comprising new lift structures connected into an existing footbridge, new walkway from the existing car park, platform building modifications, new HV and LV supplies, services upgrades, platform drainage, regrading, resurfacing and signage.

Scope of Work

Faulconbridge Railway Station is one of the stations upgraded through the Transport Access Program to provide a better experience for public transport customers by delivering accessible, modern, secure and integrated transport infrastructure.

The project involved installation of two new lifts linking the existing footbridge with the platform level and the bus stop on the Great Western Highway, new commuter facilities within the existing station building and full platform resurfacing.

Arenco was responsible for all the design and construction works to the existing station including the provision of two new lifts and the reconfiguration of the platform building to provide a family accessible toilet, a unisex ambulant toilet and an upgraded waiting area.

A new footpath was provided from the car park with rest area seating and lighting. The island platform was regraded and resurfaced with new tactile indicators to the platform edges and new landscaped areas provided. The existing bus stop shelters were provided with new seating. Services were upgraded including a new HV electrical service and isolation transformer connected to the station incoming supply.

Significant Achievements

Successfully worked in areas with difficult or restricted access subject to live rail and commuter movements and met major station construction milestones during weekend track possessions.

All works completed without interruption to rail staff, commuter or pedestrian movements. 

Successfully utilised a drill and expanding grout process to assist in the lift pit excavation in rock that was adjacent to the rail track. This avoided disturbance to the existing rail services connected to the rock face in the rail corridor and the existing Sydney Water asset in the road footpath.
