We are delivering new commuter car parking spaces at Craigieburn Station.
The new car park is being 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.
The car park will:
- increase car parking spaces
- provide improved pedestrian access to the station
- improve safety and security with CCTV and lighting
- provide accessible parking for people of all abilities.
Construction of the car park is underway until late 2020.
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.
