Minister for Transport Gladys Berejiklian today joined Member for Campbelltown Bryan Doyle to hand over another 69 former staff parking spaces to customers at Campbelltown Station, with work also under way to provide another 60 spaces.

“I’m delighted to be opening yet another new car park for our customers at this busy public transport interchange in Western Sydney,” Ms Berejiklian said.

“Just last month, we opened a new car park with 26 spaces on Farrow Road for commuters that was previously only available to staff and we were very pleased to watch as customers immediately started filling up that space right next to Campbelltown Station.

“We have already received positive feedback on the impact the additional spaces are having on customer journeys and today we are handing back an extra 69 spaces.”

The work is part of the Baird Government’s promise to release 1,200 rail staff car parking spaces to customers at almost 100 locations across the state.

Ms Berejiklian said since March 2011, the NSW Government has delivered more than 3,400 parking spaces across the network, with another 1,600 under construction.

Mr Doyle said it was fantastic to be able to deliver customers the new car spaces, as that is what the local community has asked for to improve their daily journey to work.

“The Baird Government is listening and delivering for this community,” Mr Doyle said.

“It can be so frustrating hunting for a parking space as you rush to catch your train, which is why we have put such a focus on creating more parking.”

Mr Doyle said the former staff car park on Hurley Street has been upgraded with a new surface and line marking, and improvements to lighting and fencing to enhance commuter safety, with CCTV also being installed next month.

“Another 60 spaces will be delivered by the middle of this year, bringing the total number of rail staff spaces handed back to commuters at Campbelltown Station to more than 150. This is just fantastic news.”

This work is being delivered as part of the NSW Government’s Transport Access Program, delivering modern, safe and accessible infrastructure throughout NSW.

Elsewhere in South West Sydney, a major upgrade of Ingleburn station is under way and scheduled for completion later this year. And customers are loving the South West Rail Link, which was opened to the public last month, with local residents now able to catch regular services between Leppington and Liverpool, the minister said.
