220 Extra Car Parks at Keilor Plains Station
The Andrews Labor Government is relieving pressure on packed train station car parks across Victoria, to make it easier for people to drive to the station, catch the train and get to work on time.
The Victorian Budget 2016/17 delivers more than $20 million to expand station car parks in the outer-suburbs of Melbourne and regional Victoria where more spaces are needed most.
This investment includes up to 220 extra spaces at Keilor Plains Station and upgrades to the carpark infrastructure.
All-in-all, more than 1,500 extra spaces will be created at railway station car parks across the metropolitan and regional networks.
The Labor Government is also improving bus connections to train stations with more bus routes coordinating with trains.
It’s part of the Labor Government’s overhaul of Victoria’s public transport system, to run more trains, that turn up on time more often, for a growing Victoria.
