Dundas railway station is situated in the suburb of Dundas, in Sydney's north western suburbs on the Carlingford Line. This station is largely unused.

The station has a single platform on a single track branch. There is a pedestrian level crossing to reach the other side of the line. The platform is only 4 cars long.

Pedestrian crossing

Because of the limitations of the single line section, the train service at its most frequent intervals is only about one train every 38 minutes. At off peak times, a clockface timetable of one train per hour applies. Most trains connect with western line trains at Clyde.

The Epping to Chatswood railway line was originally intended to continue from Epping to Parramatta, and would have travelled along the existing Carlingford line through Dundas, which would be widened from single-track to dual-track. However, in August 2003 the NSW Transport Minister, Michael Costa, announced that the Epping-Parramatta section would be postponed indefinitely.[1]

Dundas is the 171st most patronised railway station in Sydney (out of a total of 176 stations), with an average of 210 passengers boarding per day.

History[edit]

Kissing Point Road station opened on 20 April 1896 and was renamed Dundas in 1901.[2]
