THE NSW Government says a design has been developed for an upgrade of Millthorpe Station which will improve accessibility and return an on-request rail stop for residents and visitors.

The government says Transport for NSW has been working with heritage specialists and architects to finalise a concept design that has taken into consideration heritage requirements and public feedback.

The design features a simple platform extension with a moveable ramp to be provided by the train staff for customers with accessibility concerns.

The design also features a new platform approximately 15 metres long that will provide seating, additional lighting, an information board and a help point.

The government says the platform extension will be a lightweight construction and will be installed parallel to the existing heritage platform.
