Punchbowl Train Metro Upgrade

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

The station will be upgraded with new lifts for the first time, level access between the platforms and trains and platform screen doors to keep people and objects away from the tracks.

A draft Station Design and Precinct Plan (SDPP) has been prepared for Punchbowl 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.
