Lidcombe railway station is a major junction station on the CityRail network, in the Sydney suburb of Lidcombe. It has 6 platforms: five for ordinary suburban services, and one for the shuttle between Lidcombe and Olympic Park - officially Platform 0 but known simply as the 'Olympic Park Sprint Platform'. Three lifts facilitate Easy Access for wheelchairs.

HistoryEdit

Lidcombe station opened in 1858 with four platforms during the construction of the railway line through the area at that time is was called Haslams Creek after Samuel Haslam a local landowner, When in 1867 land was set aside for a cemetery nearby the residents renamed the locality Rookwood. The official name of the station was changed in 1878. By the turn of the century the Necropolis was also called Rookwood so in 1914 the station name was changed again to Lidcombe.

In 1999, Platform 0 was constructed as part of the Olympic Park line works. In 2010 an extra platform for terminating City via Bankstown trains was opened. This was built as part of the CityRail Clearways Project which intends to untangle the various lines. Once a companion project at Homebush has opened and a new timetable is introduced, the Bankstown line will be separated from the Inner West line - which will no longer serve Lidcombe.

Platforms and ServicesEdit

The station is served by eleven to sixteen trains per hour each way, with additional trains during weekday peak hours.
