HURSTBRIDGE STATION CAR PARK SET FOR UPGRADE

Hurstbridge Station passengers will receive 120 sealed car parking spaces and a range of other upgrades, thanks to the Andrews Labor Government’s investment in more car parks at the suburban stations that need them most.

Member for Yan Yean Danielle Green today welcomed plans to upgrade the station car park, as part of the Labor Government’s $60 million investment in over 2,000 new and upgraded car parking spaces at key stations across the network.

The existing informal car parking area off Graysharps Road will be upgraded with the new sealed spaces, while safety and accessibility in the car park will be boosted with new lighting, CCTV, drainage and footpaths.

By upgrading car parking at Hurstbridge Station, there will be less pressure on parking in neighbouring streets and the nearby Hurstbridge shops.

These additional 120 spaces mean Labor will have added 241 extra car parks to the Hurstbridge line stations, with 40 new and upgraded car parks currently being built at Montmorency Station and Watsonia Station receiving an additional 101 spaces last year.

Other key stations to be upgraded as part of this $60 million investment include Belgrave, Sandown Park, Sunbury, Epping and Craigieburn.

The $60 million car park package is part of the Labor Government’s $1.9 billion investment in public transport in the Victorian Budget 2018/19.
