A MODERN design, covered walkways, sleek platforms and a new elevator - this is what  commuters can expect from the long-awaited upgrade to Ingleburn railway station.

Residents have been urged to provide feedback on the proposed design of a new-look Ingleburn railway station, which has gone on public exhibition.

Transport Minister Gladys Berejiklian said if the plans were approved, construction would begin in 2014.

"The proposed Ingleburn station upgrade includes new lifts, covered walkways, bicycle storage and parking for customers with a disability," Ms Berejiklian said.

"These improvements will make it easier for customers using Ingleburn station to access public transport."

Campbelltown MP Bryan Doyle said the upgrade would remedy the station's uneven platform and long ramps.

"It's a whole station upgrade," he said.

Mr Doyle pointed out the concept plan preserved the station's historic bunya pine tree, which was planted in 1901 to mark the site of the suburb's post office after it was destroyed by fire.

He visited the station earlier this week and said the plan had been met with a positive response.

"They're just amazed it's finally happening," he said.

The concept plan and review of environmental factors is on exhibition at Campbelltown Civic Centre, HJ Daley Library and Greg Percival Library, Ingleburn, until August 12.
