Client Transport for NSW
Value $14M

This project entailed a sweeping, heritage-sensitive upgrade of Denistone Station delivered by Haslin Constructions on behalf of Transport for NSW as part of the Transport Access Program. The centrepiece of the upgrade was the installation of two brand new lifts, which provide seamless, air-conditioned access from road to platform.

This upgrade was delivered with the utmost sensitivity toward the station’s history, with a salient example being the Art Deco Awning which was restored and now proudly adorns the station entrance once more. Beyond the site’s physical heritage, Haslin were proud to deliver this project on Wallumettagal country, building on Transport for NSW’s Aboriginal Interpretation via our focus on employing indigenous labour and engaging on-site with indigenous elders.

The project’s full scope of works entailed:

  • Two new lifts connecting the station concourse to the station platforms;
  • New canopies and new benches at the boarding assistance zones on both platforms;
  • Upgrades to both platform surfaces including the waiting rooms to provide accessible paths from the new lifts to the boarding assistance zones and station amenities;
  • An upgrade of the existing stairs on both platforms with new compliant handrails;
  • New family accessible toilet and new unisex ambulant toilet within the existing station building on Platform 1 and 2;
  • Reinstatement of the heritage awning at the station entrance;
  • New kiss and ride bay and a new bench next to the existing school service bus stop on Gordon Crescent;
  • One new accessible parking space in the commuter car park on Gordon Crescent with new line marking;
  • Relocation of the existing bike racks in the Gordon Crescent car park;
  • Relocation or replacement existing Opal readers, drinking fountain, vending machine and seating
  • An upgrade of the footpaths and ramp access between the station entrance and the existing car park on Gordon Crescent and regrade the pathways throughout the station precinct for accessibility;
  • Improvements to CCTV, lighting and wayfinding.

The upgrade will provides a station precinct that is accessible to people with disabilities, limited mobility, parents/carers with prams and customers with luggage.
