Car parks for commuters
The Victorian Government is making it easier for commuters to catch the train by building and upgrading car parks at train stations across Victoria.
Over 11,000 new and upgraded car spaces will be added to some of our busiest stations, unclogging neighbouring streets and helping more people use our public transport network.
This is on top of the almost 10,000 new and upgraded car parks delivered over the last four years.
In the Victorian Budget 2018/19, $67 million was allocated to build 2000 new and upgraded car parks at Belgrave, Craigieburn, Hurstbridge, Sandown Park and Sunbury train stations.
In the Victorian Budget 2019/20, the Government established a Car Parks for Commuters fund to build 11,000 new and upgraded car parks at train stations across the state.
With around 55,000 station spaces currently available in Victoria, it’ll deliver a 20 per cent boost in parking at train stations.
As part of the Car Park for Commuters program, improvements to accessibility, lighting, security and signage will be made across a number of train stations.
Development work on this project has already started, with site assessments, environmental studies and safety investigations now under way.
We’re building more car parks at Bacchus Marsh, Ballan, Rockbank and the new station at Cobblebank to deliver more spaces where they’re needed most.
