Car parks for Craigieburn commuters
A new 745 space car park has opened at Craigieburn Station, boosting the total number of parking spaces at the station to more than 1,200 and making it easier for commuters to find a car park and catch the train.
Delivered through the Victorian Government’s Car Parks for Commuters program, which is building and upgrading car parks at stations to make it easier to catch the train, the new car park at Craigieburn will meet the demand of the popular area.
The upgrade includes a new footpath connecting people from the car park to the station and the added lighting and CCTV will make it safer for people to use the car park at all times of the day and night.
A signalised pedestrian crossing over Potter Street and an upgraded pedestrian crossing over the railway line have also been provided to assist commuters in accessing the station safely from the new car park.
More than 30 new parking spaces were built at Craigieburn Station in 2019. This was in addition to the 123 spaces delivered since October 2016, helping to ease congestion in the short term.
The Car Parks for Commuters program is helping to deliver the Victorian Government’s commitment of 11,000 new and upgraded car parks at train stations across metropolitan and regional Victoria, on top of the almost 10,000 new and upgraded car parks delivered between 2014 and 2018.
The 11,000 new and upgraded car parks will free up local streets, make it easier to catch the train, improve safety, and generate jobs across the state.
