Plans to deliver approximately 250 additional commuter car parking spaces at Warwick Farm train station will see an additional two storeys added to the existing multi-storey car park.
The proposal, which is part of the NSW Government's Commuter Car Park Program, has accelerated as part of the NSW Government's $3 billion Infrastructure and Job Acceleration Fund in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Other features of the proposal include:
- 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.
Holsworthy MP Melanie Gibbons said 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".
Subject to planning approval, construction of the project is planned to begin in early 2021 and is expected to be completed by early 2022.
"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," she said.
