Canberra Railway Station - Renovation by NSW TrainLink

 
  Campaspe 2 Junior Train Controller

As I understand it from Transport for NSW Media Releases and a note in the NSW TrainLink Annual Report, Canberra station is the first NSW TrainLink regional station (i.e. outside the InterCity area bound by Goulburn, Lithgow and Newcastle) to have been renovated by NSW TrainLink.

Can anyone indicate what work was undertaken at the station? Was it simply a repaint, or did they undertake any further work, such as new signage, upgrading the waiting area with new carpet and seats, renovated the toilets, upgraded the lighting, etc.

Also, when was this work undertaken?

Any photos would be appreciated.

Thanks

Regards

"World Class Waiting Rooms As part of the Station Refresh initiative, a new standard of ‘indoor waiting room seat’ has been developed with enhanced and world class comfort for customers. With Canberra and Central Stations being the first to have the new indoor waiting rooms, the result has ensured overall compliance with accessibility requirements as well as enhanced the comfort of our customers. Customer Environments from TfNSW took the lead on the selection of the new seats and colour schemes, with significant input from the NSW TrainLink team. They style of seat selected is used in the world’s best airport waiting rooms, so the teams knew that they would create a world class solution for customers. After a lengthy manufacturing and shipping process, the new seats were installed at Canberra and Central in early December. Lela Hopkins, Travel Centre Manager Canberra said, “we definitely feel more stylish here now, and people seemed very comfortable this morning!” Importantly, the new seat layouts are designed to ensure there are specific wheelchair spaces built in so there is sufficient space for pathways around the seats."
