Northern Sydney Freight Corridor website

Something about the third rail line between Epping and Pennant Hills can be found at their website:

The website contains some of the answers to the Trust's questions, saying specfically

  • upgrade to Cheltenham station to include new pedestrian footbridge, stairs, three new lifts, platform modifications and new commuter car park (retaining existing numbers of parking spaces).  

  • modifications to the roof and retaining walls of the pedestrian underpass at Beecroft Station.

  • new car park at Beecroft Station (retaining existing numbers of parking spaces) and modifications to existing footpath.

  • construction of a new bridge crossing the M2 Motorway.

  • a new lift, stairs and extending Pennant Hills station concourse, as well as modifications to existing footpath, roadway and the footbridge south of the station.

    Nothing said about improved access to Beecroft station for aged and disabled, hopefully that will be included in the final plans.

  • Regarding timescale, the website says work will start during 2012 and be complete by 2016.
