Bardwell Park railway station is located on the East Hills line, serving the Sydney suburb of Bardwell Park. It is served by Sydney Trains T2 Airport line services.

History[edit]

Bardwell Park station opened on 21 September 1931 when the East Hills line opened from Tempe to East Hills.[1][2] In 2000, as part of the quadruplication of the line between Wolli Creek and Kingsgrove, through lines were added on either side of the existing pair.

On 22 April 2015 the station suffered significant flooding due to inclement weather, with the flood water nearly reaching the height of the platform. A time lapse video of CCTV from the station was released publicly showing the rising flood water.[3]
