The number of parking spaces available for customers at Engadine train station will be significantly increased under a NSW Liberals & Nationals Government.

Premier Gladys Berejiklian said the $25 million investment to deliver 210 new commuter car spaces is only possible because of the NSW Liberals & Nationals Government’s strong economic management.

“These car spaces we are committed to delivering are on top of the 105 already available at the station,” Ms Berejiklian said.

“Once this new commuter car park is complete there will be over 300 car spaces available for customers around Engadine station.

“As a Government we are doing all we can to encourage people to use public transport and extra car spaces give commuters a good reason to do so.”

Member for Heathcote Lee Evans said the new car park would address the increasing demand for parking in the area from train customers.

“We opened a new 63-space commuter car park at Engadine station in 2017 but with the enormous growth on our train network more needs to be done,” Mr Evans said.

“I’ve listened to my community and they love the convenience of commuter car parks, that’s why our Government will deliver even more spaces for the people of Heathcote.”

Since 2011, the NSW Government has delivered more than more than 550 commuter car spaces in southern Sydney at locations like Sutherland (388) and Oatley (100).

Discussions to acquire a site for the new multi-storey commuter car park are underway. Following that, planning work and community consultation will begin with construction expected to take 18 months from when a builder is appointed.
