Sydney, NSW

The Transport Access Program is an NSW Government initiative aimed at enhancing the public transport experience through accessible, modern and integrated infrastructure at train stations across the state.

Stations included in the program have been identified for customised packages of upgrade and improvement works such as the installation of lifts, creation of accessible pathways, enhanced wayfinding and improved landscaping.

As part of the upgrades GML prepared heritage interpretation plans for several stations, including St Peters, Petersham, Killara, Turrella, Erskineville, Pymble, Beecroft and Wahroonga. GML designed bespoke interpretation installations drawing on each station’s unique historic and heritage values.

Interpretative devices identified by GML included graphic perforated screens, vinyl installations, signage suites and public mural art. GML developed all devices in consultation with DesignInc and Transport for NSW and the head contractor Laing O’Rourke to ensure integration across designs for the stations.
