Lakemba Station

About Lakemba Station

Customers at Lakemba Station will have a new air-conditioned metro train every four minutes in the peak – that’s 15 trains an hour. Lakemba Station is currently serviced by 8 trains an hour in the morning peak.

The station will be upgraded level access between platforms and trains and platform screen doors to keep people and objects away from the tracks. The existing lifts and entrances will be retained.

A Station Design and Precinct Plan (SDPP) has been prepared for Lakemba Station that shows how the new station design has developed and how it will integrate with the surrounding precinct. The key improvements are summarised here.
