With construction starting soon on a new multi-deck car park, local commuters will finally have access to additional parking at Campbelltown Station.
The new parking structure on Farrow Road will include 935 parking spaces and will be constructed on the existing parking lot at the station.
The Federal Member for Macarthur, Dr Mike Freelander MP, has long advocated for additional parking spaces for Macarthur commuters and so, was very pleased with this project’s announcement.
“Local commuters spend a great deal of time searching for parking at Campbelltown Station only to find all parking spots are full, as a significant number of Macarthur residents rely on parking at Campbelltown Station when commuting to their jobs, social gatherings or appointments along our rail network,” he said.
Temporary parking will be established adjacent to the site to ensure commuters are able to access parking throughout the construction period.
Construction of the $22.09 million project is fully funded by the Australian Government under the Urban Congestion Fund, while Council is the owner of the land.
Campbelltown Mayor George Greiss said the additional parking will be a welcome addition for commuters.
“The design will enable the structure to complement the surrounding future land uses and potential economic uplift in order to maximise the site’s potential going forward,” he said.
