A brand new commuter car park on Barclay Road at North Rocks has received planning approval, in a major step towards delivering approximately 135 car spaces to service public transport customers catching buses travelling along the M2 motorway.
Baulkham Hills State Liberal MP David Elliott welcomed the announcement, saying the approval was a major step towards peak-hour congestion relief for North Rocks residents.
“The new car park is being delivered as part of NSW Government’s Commuter Car Park Program, designed to make it easier for customers who need to drive part of their journey before catching public transport,” Mr Elliott said.
“This investment will not only deliver benefits for commuters, it will also generate jobs in a range of fields including engineering, construction and administration roles.”
“The delivery of commuter car parks at key transport interchanges provides a range of benefits including improved customer access to the public transport network, encouraging mode shift away from private vehicles and reducing congestion on our road network.”
Key features of the project include:
- A new commuter car park with approximately 135 car spaces;
- Accessible parking spaces;
- Transport ‘Park&Ride’ (Opal operated boom gates);
- Lighting and wayfinding signage; and,
- Landscaping within the car park and fencing.
Construction of the new car park is expected to start in the coming months and open to customers in mid-2022.
