WORKS UNDERWAY ON SUNBURY STATION CAR PARK
The Andrews Labor Government is getting on with works to deliver a new multi-deck car park at Sunbury Station, making it easier for commuters to park, catch the train and travel.
Minister for Public Transport Ben Carroll today announced site preparations and the relocation of underground utilities have commenced, with major construction set to get underway later this month.
The project will see more than 400 new car parking spaces delivered. It will also include accessible car parking, as well as better lighting and improved signage within the station precinct.
From 20 June, ground-level car parks on the site where the new multi-deck car park is being built will be closed. Signed detours will be in place to help motorists, pedestrians and cyclists get where they need to go.
Commuter car parking near the station entrances on the east and west sides will remain open during the works, as well as free all-day parking in other areas around Sunbury station.
Pedestrians will still have access from the south and south-east of the station via the footpath on Evans Street and the main station entrance on Brook Street.
Alternative parking for commuters will also be provided in the council-operated car park on Brook Street, near Hume Global Learning Centre – a -seven-minute walk or two-minute bus ride from Sunbury Station.
For local shoppers and visitors, other short-term parking options can be found on the south of Evans Street, within 400 metres of the existing car park site, or in the car park on Barkly Street.
The project is being delivered by Hume City Council and is jointly funded with support from the Australian Government’s Urban Congestion Fund, the Victorian Government’s Car Parks for Commuters Program, the Victorian Growth Areas Infrastructure Contribution (GAIC) Fund, and Hume City Council.
Works on the new multi-deck car park will be complete late-2024.
