MORE TRAIN STATION CAR PARKING FOR BEAUFORT COMMUTERS

It will be easier for Beaufort passengers to find a car park with a re-elected Andrews Labor Government to build more car parking at Beaufort Station.

Whether it’s building more car parking or upgrading every regional rail line, only Labor will make it easier for people in Beaufort to get where they need to go into Ballarat or Melbourne for work, school, or to access services.

We’ve delivered 19 more services on the Ararat line and the Ballarat Line Upgrade will mean more trains, more often.

There’s more to do and only Labor will build at least 40 new and upgraded car parks at Beaufort Station as part of Labor’s $150 million Car parks for Commuters Fund.

The project will also include new lighting and CCTV to make the station safer.

Labor’s Car Parks for Commuters Fund will see 11,000 new and upgraded car parks being built at some of our busiest metropolitan and regional train stations.

With around 55,000 station spaces currently across the state, the investment will see a 20 per cent bump in available parking.

The additional 11,000 spaces are on top of the close to 10,000 new and upgraded spaces built by the Andrews Labor Government over the past four years, and is expected to create and support over 400 jobs.

While the former Liberal Government failed to invest in our state’s growing suburbs cutting funding for schools, hospitals, road and rail – only Labor can be trusted to deliver the big projects local communities really need.
