NSW Premier Mike Baird and Transport Minister Andrew Constance have visited Laing O’Rourke’s Wickham Transport Interchange Project to unveil new designs for the commuter hub.
The new interchange design incorporates recommendations and feedback received from the community following the public display of the Review of Environment (REF) and ongoing discussions with key stakeholders.
The new interchange will provide easy access for customers, linking them with trains, buses, taxis and the new light rail.
Transport for NSW and Laing O’Rourke have been working closely with key stakeholders to consider the needs of customers in the new interchange design, as well as the functionality required for day-to-day operations.
The new design has of a number of key design changes. Most notably:
- more retail space
increased public space with improved amenity
improved floor space for station and operational staff
new roof structure
improved weather proofing
We want to create a striking public space that not only looks good, but will provide easy access for public transport commuters
