Engadine customers will soon benefit from improved station facilities with a contract awarded for a new commuter car park at Engadine Station.
With a contractor now on board, detailed design can get underway so construction can commence as soon as possible. Construction is expected to commence later this year on the new car park adjacent to the rail corridor on Princes Highway which will include around 70 new commuter spaces, fencing, lighting and CCTV to boost security.
The car park is being delivered as part of the NSW Government’s Transport Access Program, an initiative to deliver modern, safe and accessible transport infrastructure. Parking near stations is a big issue for customers and that’s why the NSW Government is investing in new parking spaces at stations where there is growing demand.
St George and Sutherland Shire customers have been major beneficiaries of the program. Planning approval for a station upgrade at Jannali was received earlier this year and upgrades at Arncliffe, Heathcote and Oatley Stations are underway. An upgrade of Waterfall Station was completed last year.
Since the Transport Access Program began in April 2012 more than 450 projects are underway or have been completed.
