Niagara Park Railway Station in New South Wales underwent an upgrade in 2017. ORCA Australian-made GV200 channels were chosen for this project, alongside our patented galvanized heelguard and slip-resistant Griptech grates.
The Niagara Park Station upgrade was part of the NSW Public Transport Access Program which aimed to deliver accessible, modern, secure and integrated transport infrastructure for public transport customers. The town itself has come a long way since its timber getting and cattle raising roots. In recent times its seen an increase in population from not only retirees but also young millennials looking to escape the city for a more balanced and affordable lifestyle.
The brief:The station itself was in very poor condition with safety hazards and access issues. Designers required a trench drain to remove surface water runoff in wet days. As well as improved wheelchair and walking access to cater for the stations increase in population. Grates needed to be heel friendly as well as visually appealing with the new platform and furniture.
The solution:Orca Australian Made GV200 with our patented galvanized heelguard and slip resistant Griptech grate.
