The Andrews Labor Government and Hume City Council are working together to assess the best options for car parking in Sunbury.

Last year the Andrews Labor Government committed to build 300 new car parks at the Sunbury Station by extending the multi deck car park on the western side of the station.

Recent discussions with the Hume City Council have provided a second option, that has the potential to deliver hundreds of new shopper and trader car parks on top of the 300 committed to by the Andrews Labor Government.

The second option involves building a multi-deck carpark on the corner of Station Street and Evans Street, to the south of the station.

The Andrews Labor Government and the City of Hume will now work closely, undertaking site assessments and environmental and technical investigations to get the best outcome for the local community.

In addition to this work, the Andrews Labor Government is getting on with removing the dangerous and congested Gap Road level crossing, with planning work and site investigations also underway.

The Level Crossing Removal Authority will be carrying out site investigations from now until September and will work closely with the City of Hume to better understand how we can deliver the car parks and remove the level crossing.
