Minister for Transport Gladys Berejiklian visited the Illawarra on Friday to inspect the new Shellharbour Junction Station before it opens for business on Saturday.
She was joined by the Minister for the Illawarra John Ajaka and Member for Kiama Gareth Ward.
Ms Berejiklian said the new station and interchange includes lifts, CCTV cameras and security lighting, a "kiss and ride" zone, taxi and bus bays, bike racks and 105 parking spaces, including four accessible spaces.
"I am so pleased to be in Shellharbour as we get ready to open the new station for customers - what a fantastic day for this community," Ms Berejiklian said.
"It has been exciting to watch this station take shape and now we're at the stage where our customers will be tapping on with their Opal card this weekend and jumping on the train to connect with Sydney and the surrounding region."
The first train was due to stop at Shellharbour Junction at 2.51am on Saturday on the way to Sydney.
