Carlton upgrade great news for OKI
Carlton Railway Station is set to finally receive its long awaited $6.2 million upgrade from the State Government. Although significantly behind timetable, work on the ?Easy Access? upgrade is expected to commence before the end of 2006.
The Carlton upgrade includes:
* 4 new lifts and new canopies.
* New family accessible toilet
* Improved lighting and CCTV coverage for greater security.
For many years, the home Station of the Dragons has been a lot less accessible than neighbouring stations such as Hurstville, Allawah, Kogarah and Rockdale. However, the Carlton Station upgrade will place it on a par with neighbouring stations in terms of access for the aged, frail and parents with young children.
Although considered a formality, the $6.2 million upgrade still needs to be approved by both Kogarah and Rockdale Councils.
The State Government commitment is another bonus for OKI Jubilee Stadium. When construction is complete, the home Station of the Dragons will be able to provide better service to patrons that are attending the spiritual home of the Dragons.
