A re-elected Liberal Government will commit $15 million to expanding Tallawong Metro Commuter Car Park making catching public transport even easier and more convenient for commuters in Sydney’s north-west.
Liberal candidate for Riverstone, Mohit Kumar, said major upgrade works to construct additional levels to the existing Tallawong multi-storey commuter car park will deliver commuters access to new car parking spaces, including additional accessible spaces.
“A commitment to expand the Tallawong Metro Commuter Car Park will ensure that more commuters will be able to take advantage of the Liberal and Nationals Government extension of the Metro line from Tallawong to St Marys and onto Sydney’s new airport. This expansion will support thousands of jobs, additional housing and access to services across the region,” Mr Kumar said
“To ensure people can catch public transport quickly and safely there will be access to hundreds of parking spaces in close proximity to this major metro station. We are future-proofing the transport needs of our city.”
Mr Kumar said an expanded commuter carpark at Tallawong station will ensure the community has a more convenient and seamless journey.
“This announcement is a win for our community particularly in middle and outer metropolitan areas, it will give locals ease of access to the extension of the Metro service to the new airport,” he said.
“Key benefits of the upgrade works include extension of the lifts, stairs and internal ramps to the new upper levels, additional accessible parking spaces, Park&Ride boom gates and provision for future electric vehicle charging spaces.”
Other features include rooftop solar panels as well as CCTV, lighting and wayfinding for improved safety and security.
The NSW Liberal Government has also committed more than $350 million over the next four years to see the delivery of more car parking spaces across Greater Sydney.
