Minister for Transport John Robertson visited Fairfield Station to announce a $5.5 million upgrade of the Fairfield transport interchange.

“There will be more room for buses, taxis and cars dropping off and picking up passengers from the station and more shelter to protect people from the sun and the rain.

“The new bus interchange on the western side of the station will include new bus bays, expanded waiting areas for passengers and new shelters.

“Dedicated taxi and kiss ‘n’ ride areas will be provided on both sides of the station, along with improved signage and bicycle facilities," said the Minister.

  1. I'm not too impressed by the proposal to move the head of the bus ranks a further 50m from the station exit.
    Nor is it a good idea to remove the existing signalised ped. Xing at the station entrance which leads directly to the arcade. Peds will still risk the Xing, perhaps leading to the usual solution, an unsightly median fence.
    I'd be happy to be shown wrong.
