Statement of significance:

This is the first station complex to be provided as part of an adjacent development and not funded by State Rail. While the buildings are not of high architectural merit they represent the approach of the railway administration in the 1970's to station construction.

REASSESSED SIGNIFICANCE: Mount Druitt Station Group does not meet the threshold for heritage listing as it has lost its
ability to provide physical evidence and demonstrate construction techniques or architectural character of the 1970s station design, which was pioneering in representing the approach of the railway administration in the 1970's station construction.
