Work has begun on Glenbrook’s new railway commuter car park.
Member for Penrith, Stuart Ayres, said the upgrade was about “delivering accessible, modern, secure and integrated transport infrastructure where it is needed most”.
Trees have been removed and pruned ready for the installation of electricity poles and wiring and temporary site sheds are in place.
The new car park will provide about 50 extra car parking spaces as well as two disabled access parking spaces close to the station entrance, he said.
There will also be improved lighting between the station entrance and the new car park/accessible parking spaces, as well as a safer pedestrian crossing and traffic island, better footpaths, way-finding signage and security fencing
Safety improvements to the station entrance include a new balustrade and non-slip paint to the ramp.
The car park is tipped to open by the end of 2013 or early 2014.
Minister for Transport Gladys Berejiklian said the planned improvements were part of the NSW Government’s $770 million Transport Access Program to bring real improvements for public transport customers.
