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.
