Delivering More Station Car Parks Across The State

It's now easier than ever before to catch the train with hundreds of new and upgraded station car parks now open across the state.

The parking boost of 225 spaces includes 50 new spaces at Wattle Glen Station, 55 new spaces at Yarraman Station, 50 new and upgraded at Nar Nar Goon Station, and 40 new spaces at Drouin Station, with 30 more new and upgraded spaces to be opened in coming weeks at Upper Ferntree Gully Station.

Locals will also benefit from new accessible parking bays, bicycle parking, lighting and CCTV, with new secure Parkiteer bike facilities also set to become available at Upper Ferntree Gully and Yarraman stations.

Delivering the new and upgraded car parks will free up neighbouring streets and make it easier and safer for more people to catch the train.

The new and upgraded car spaces at Wattle Glen, Yarraman, Nar Nar Goon, Drouin and Upper Ferntree Gully stations are part of the Car Parks for Commuters program.

Delivered by the Level Crossing Removal Project, the projects are also planting more than 19,000 new trees, shrubs and grasses across the five sites.

Major construction is also well underway at Merlynston Station, providing 300 new and upgraded car parks for Coburg, Fawkner and Pascoe Vale commuters.

Stage 1 works are nearing completion on the north-east car park and bicycle facilities, which are scheduled to open later this month.

The unveiling coincides with the recent opening of the Tarneit Station car park, delivering 500 new and upgraded spaces for commuters, as well as new lighting and CCTV.

The Car Parks for Commuters program has delivered 15,000 new and upgraded car parks across Victorian Stations to date, with an additional 6000 to be delivered.
