Commuters in Melbourne’s east will soon find it easier to park, catch the train and travel – with works underway on the new multi-level car park at Belgrave Station.
Minister for Public Transport Ben Carroll and Member for Monbulk Daniela De Martino today visited the site to see how the works are progressing.
The car park will see 640 parking spaces built across four-levels, which will also include 16 accessible spaces, lifts and new and upgraded bicycle facilities. Lighting and CCTV will also be installed to improve safety for passengers.
An undercover pick-up and drop off area will also be delivered as part of the project, along with road widening to improve access to the car park, a new bus priority exit lane and bus priority signals at the roundabout.
Around three quarters of the car park structure are now complete, with construction underway to install the car park’s façade.
Passengers who usually park at Belgrave Station have been using a temporary car park at Upwey High School, within walking distance to Upwey Station, while works continue to build the new car park.
The car park is being delivered by VicTrack as part of the Andrews Labor Government’s Car Parks for Commuters Program and is scheduled for completion later this year.
VicTrack has appointed ADCO to design and construct the car park following a tender process.
Since 2014, the Labor Government has delivered 16,000 new and upgraded parking spaces at train stations across the state, is on track to deliver an additional 5,000 new and upgraded spaces.
