Planning is underway to deliver approximately 250 additional commuter car parking spaces at Warwick Farm Station, thanks to the NSW Government’s Commuter Car Park Program.
“The Commuter Car Park Program is designed to make it easier for customers who need to drive part of their journey to access public transport hubs,” Ms Gibbons said.
“This investment will not only deliver benefits for hundreds of commuters but will generate jobs in a range of fields including engineering, construction and administration roles.”
Key features of the proposal include:
- adding two storeys to the existing multi-storey car park, providing approximately 250 additional spaces
- a new lift and extension of the existing lift
- additional accessible parking spaces close to the station
- solar panels on the rooftop level
- provision for future electric vehicle charging spaces
- motorcycle parking bays
- a new footpath through Hart Park to improve connectivity to the station
- CCTV, lighting and wayfinding signage for improved safety and security.
The Review of Environmental Factors is available to view online and the community is invited to provide their feedback on the concept design by Sunday 25 October 2020: https://www.transport.nsw.gov.au/warwickfarm
Subject to planning approval, construction of the project is planned to begin in early 2021 and is expected to be completed by early 2022.
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the delivery of additional commuter parking at Warwick Farm Station is being accelerated as part of the NSW Government’s $3 billion Infrastructure and Job Acceleration Fund.
