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

History[edit]

Bus stop on western entrance in November 2011

East Hills station opened on 21 December 1931 when the line was extended from Kingsgrove.[1] It served as the terminus of the line until it was extended to Glenfield on 21 December 1987.[2]

A new station was built south-east of the original station as part of the extension opening in August 1987 with the original station closed and demolished.[3] Following the extension, East Hills became the main intermediate terminus and an interchange point between all stops and limited stops trains. In addition to the two through tracks (platforms 2 and 3), a side terminating track (platform 1) was provided. A new centre turnback at Revesby opened in 2009 as part of the Rail Clearways Program, which ended East Hills' role as the primary intermediate terminus.
