The Minister says 'yes, it will happen', while his department says, 'maybe' - so will Unanderra station get lifts or not?
In February Roads and Transport Minister Andrew Constance seemed to leave no doubt about what Unanderra would get.
"Unanderra station will get the lifts it needs to ensure all customers ... can easily access the platform," he said when promising $20 million for the upgrade.
However, since this announcement, Transport for NSW's language has been less emphatic - preferring to say "the upgrade may include lifts ...".
The Mercury sent several questions to Mr Constance, asking whether he would confirm the station would get lifts.
Those questions were passed onto Transport for NSW for a response.
"The concept design has not been finalised, however the station layout of an island platform with station access available from both sides indicates the need for three lifts in order to be a fully accessible station," a Transport for NSW spokeswoman said.
"While there are technical design issues yet to be developed, three lifts will be required to deliver the project's accessibility objectives."
The spokeswoman said Transport for NSW would carry out more "technical investigations and planning works", which will be used to improve the final concept design ahead of planning approval and construction.
"This will involve engagement with the community and key stakeholders during the preparation and public display of the Review of Environmental Factors, which is a key planning document that sets out the design of the upgrade and assessments that have been undertaken," the Transport for NSW spokeswoman said.
