Happy: Lesley Carnogursky (left) and Barbara Mostyn with member for Light, Tony Piccolo.The Gawler Railway Station upgrade has received the thumbs up from users of trains and buses.
The $250,000 investment has seen the installation of new continuous pathways, seating, a bus shelter and interchange.
Acting Transport and Infrastructure minister, and member for Light Tony Piccolo said in addition to these works, new accessible parking spaces were now available and pathway access to the station had been improved.
“New pathway access is now available from 23rd Street to the kiosk and the Gawler Railway Station platform,” Mr Piccolo said.
“Along with the other completed upgrade works this station is now also compliant with the Disability Discrimination Act, has increased security and greatly improved safety and accessibility for all Adelaide metro customers using the station.
“The newly constructed interchange can also accommodate around four Adelaide metro buses, providing a much more efficient service for passengers boarding connecting buses.”
Evanston Park resident, Ms Lesley Carnogursky said she was a frequent user of the bus service in Gawler and the changes had exceeded her expectations.
“This is a wonderful response and I’m very happy with this upgrade,” Ms Carnogursky said.
Ms Barbara Mostyn, of Evanston, said that before the upgrade people were always out in the rain or sun while waiting for public transport.
“We asked Tony for his help and this is a marvellous outcome,” Ms Mostyn said.
“It made it much easier for me to use our excellent public transport here in Gawler.”
Other works undertaken included:
• improved lighting; • wider accessible pathways; • new contrasting kerbs to provide easy access to buses; • a new “kiss ‘n’ go” facility.
