MORE TRAIN STATION CAR PARKING FOR GEELONG COMMUTERS

It will be easier for Geelong commuters to find a car park with a re-elected Andrews Labor Government to build more car parking at North Shore Station.

Whether it’s building more car parking or upgrading every regional rail line, only Labor will make it easier and safer for people in Geelong to get where they need to go.

The Labor Government has added hundreds of services for Geelong locals, getting on with upgrading the line and is planning for future growth through the Waurn Ponds duplication and fast rail to Geelong.

There’s more to do and only Labor will build 200 new and upgraded car parks at North Shore Station as part of Labor’s $150 million Car Parks for Commuters Fund.

The projects will also include new lighting and CCTV to make the stations 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 are 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.

“Whether it’s upgrading every regional rail line to deliver faster and more frequent services or building new car parks, only Labor will get Victorians home safer and sooner.”

“I have been campaigning strongly to upgrade car parking at North Shore Station and only Labor will deliver hundreds more spaces and upgrade lighting and CCTV to make the station safer.”

“Demand for parking along the Geelong line is growing each week – that’s why a re-elected Andrews Labor Government will deliver 200 car parks, freeing up local streets and making it easier to commute.”
