The number of parking spaces available for customers at Emu Plains train station will more than double under a NSW Liberals & Nationals Government.

Premier Gladys Berejiklian today announced because of the NSW Liberals & Nationals Government’s strong economic management $71 million will be invested to deliver up to 800 extra commuter car spaces with a new car park at Emu Plains.

“We will deliver these additional car spaces on top of the 780 already available to customers using Emu Plains train station,” Ms Berejiklian said.

“Once this new commuter car park is complete there will be nearly 1,600 car spaces available for customers around Emu Plains station.

“As a Government we are doing all we can to encourage people to use public transport and extra car spaces makes it easier for commuters to do so.”

Member for Penrith Stuart Ayres said the car park extension would address the increasing demand for parking in the area from train customers.

“This is great news for locals who have been a part of the massive growth in patronage on the Sydney Train network over the past few years,” Mr Ayres said.

“We will convert the existing car park to the north of the station to a multi-storey facility with four levels over the ground floor to create 800 new car spaces for my community.”

Since 2011, the NSW Government has delivered more commuter car spaces in the local area, including additional spaces at Penrith, Kingswood and Glenbrook.
