About the project
We are delivering 745 new commuter car parking spaces at Craigieburn Station.
The new car park will be built along the eastern edge of the Hume Highway, directly east of the station, and will be linked to the station with a new footpath.
Planning, detailed design and the approval process is taking place during 2019 with construction to be completed in mid 2020.
This new car park will
- boost capacity to a total of 1,100 spaces
- provide improved pedestrian access to the station
- improve safety and security with CCTV and lighting
- provide accessible parking for people of all abilities.
The Craigieburn Station car park upgrade is part of the Victorian Government’s $60 million investment to deliver more than 2,000 new car parking spaces at busy metropolitan stations.
The works are also partly funded by the Growth Areas Infrastructure Fund.
In October 2018, we asked the Craigieburn community to have their say to help inform the design of the new car park.
The survey revealed that more than 50 per cent of commuters are parking in neighbouring streets, which is a clogging up local streets for residents.
In response to community feedback, accessibility and safety of the car park will be enhanced with CCTV and lighting along the pedestrian path and a new signalised pedestrian crossing installed at Potter Street. The existing pedestrian crossing across the railway line will also be upgraded as part of the works.
Multiple entry and exit points are also included in the design to help minimise traffic congestion for drivers using the new car park.
Thank you to everyone who participated in the survey. Read the full community feedback report.
