Liverpool Station is the major regional rail station and bus-rail interchange in south western Sydney. It has three platforms – two serving the main lines and one serving a terminating track on the eastern side of the station.
There is limited space to terminate and then stable trains at Liverpool Station. Services terminating and starting at Liverpool currently use a variety of operational configurations, including in some cases the use of the main line platforms. Delays on one service almost immediately affect a number of other services.
Scope of Works
The provision of an outside passing loop will allow better utilisation of the existing lines, resulting in an improved turnback facility at Liverpool Station. This will:
Passengers will receive more frequent and reliable services during peak periods.
The Liverpool Turnback project is currently in the environmental assessment stage.
Once complete, the environmental impact assessment will be available for public comment.
Should planning approval be granted, construction would commence in mid-2007 and be complete by late 2009.
