The NSW Government has awarded a contract to build and maintain more than 500 new train carriages as part of the New Intercity Fleet program.
New features on the intercity fleet will include:
- Wider seats with arm rests and more space
- Charging stations for mobile devices for each seat
- Cup holders and tray tables
- Two by two seating on upper and lower levels
- Dedicated space for luggage, prams, bicycles and wheelchairs
- Accessible toilets
- Digital screens and announcements
- CCTV and passenger intercoms
- Modern air conditioning.
A new purpose built maintenance facility will be built at Kangy Angy on the NSW Central Coast to service and maintain the new fleet of trains, subject to planning approval.
