Werrington is the 142nd most patronised railway station in Sydney (out of a total of 176 stations), with an average of 1120 passengers boarding per day.

HistoryEdit

Werrington station was originally built as a private platform on the Main Western line for Sir Henry Parkes. It was known as Parkes Platform and opened on 2 May 1868. In 1878 the platform was opened for public use, and in 1893 it was renamed Werrington.

The station was upgraded to Easy Access status for wheelchairs and people with disabilities in June 2008, with the provision of a lift to each platform from the concourse, and an accessible toilet. The upgrade included the installation of the first photovoltaic solar panels at a railway station in Sydney. An upgrade to the commuter car park was completed in June 2010.

On 18 August 2011 a boy was hit by an express heading to city after dangerously crossing the tracks. The boy's leg and elbow were broken as well as sustaining serious injury. Transit officers arrived soon to call emergency services. The boy was then transported to Westmead Children's Hospital for treatment. It was revealed that the boy had survived by hiding in the 'lip' of the platform where the train had injured but not killed him.
