Have Your Say on Additional Commuter Car Parking Spaces at Emu Plains Station

Stuart Ayres MP, Member for Penrith is inviting public transport customers and the local community to have their say on plans for 750 additional car parking spaces at Emu Plains Station.

“The Commuter Car Park Program is designed to make it easier for customers who need to drive part of their journey to access public transport hubs,” Stuart Ayres said.

“This project will not only provide more access to parking for the community but employ dozens of people in a range of fields including engineering, construction and administration roles.”

“Connectivity, safety and security are the highest priority and the proposal includes CCTV and lighting and road upgrades to accommodate turning lanes. A new pedestrian bridge over Old Bathurst Road is also part of the proposal, which will provide safe and direct access to the station.

“I am encouraging everyone to provide feedback on the plans for the project, community consultation is vital to the project’s success”.

The concept design for the proposed car park can be viewed online and the community are invited to submit their feedback via the feedback form on the project website project website by emailing or calling 1800 684 490.

Subject to community consultation and planning approval, construction is planned to begin in early 2021 and is expected to be completed in early 2022.

The Emu Plains Commuter Car Park project is a joint initiative of the Federal and State Governments to provide additional commuter parking and ease congestion on roads.

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the delivery of additional commuter parking at Emu Plains Station is being accelerated as part of the NSW Government’s $3 billion Infrastructure and Job Acceleration Fund.
