    Blacktown train station will receive new lifts, improved lighting and clean toilets as part of a major state government refurbishment project.
    NSW transport minister Gladys Berejiklian announced the project as part of a plan to spend around $20 million on improvements at key train stations this financial year.
    At a cost of $3.1 million, four of Blacktown's hydraulic lifts will be replaced with air-conditioned electric lifts which are wheelchair-friendly and include braille signage.
    The station will also receive improved LED lighting, repair work on broken tiles, thorough cleaning and a new coat of paint.
    "This work together with the lift replacements, which will improve their reliability, will result in customers enjoying much improved facilities at the station," Ms Berejiklian said.
    Alternative lift access between the bus interchange and footbridge will be available while the upgrades are underway and customers are advised to follow signs around the station.
