History

Marrickville station opened on 1 February 1895 when the Bankstown line opened from Sydenham to Belmore.[2][3]

When the station opened, it consisted only of the island platform. In 1916, the station's platforms were reconstructed with a new platform, now platform 2, built to the south of the island platform and the northern side of the island platform closed to make way for the Metropolitan Goods Line. The station has retained this set-up to date.[3]

In June 2016 an upgrade was completed with lifts and a new a new concourse built.[4][5]
