(Translation of this article appears in Arabic section)
Minister for Transport Gladys Berejikilian today said a new Granville Station commuter car park and upgraded bus interchange are another step closer after the release of a tender for the design and construction phase of the important infrastructure project.
“The NSW Government is getting on with the job of delivering better public transport infrastructure for Western Sydney customers,” Ms Berejiklian said.
“This tender release is an important milestone in providing these much needed facilities for Granville customers.”
Consultation with Parramatta City Council has helped develop the scope and design for the project. Construction is expected to begin early next year and be completed in 2014.
The Granville commuter car park and transport interchange project is being delivered as part of the NSW Government’s $770 million Transport Access Program, an initiative to deliver modern, safe and accessible transport infrastructure where it is most needed.
Member for Granville Tony Issa said the Granville commuter car park and bus interchange project was important for regular public transport customers in the area.
“The planned improvements at Granville will make it easier for customers to drive or catch a bus to the station and to access trains,” Mr Issa said.
“Customers can look forward to around 40 new commuter car parking spaces, an upgraded bus interchange, extra CCTV cameras and new toilets.
“We know parking is such an important issue for those who drive to the station on their way to work, and this will really make a difference.”
Ms Berejiklian said the NSW Government is also looking into providing more car parking spaces at Granville, following representations by Mr Issa.
“I look forward to providing more information on that important issue soon,” she said.
Ms Berejiklian said the improvements at Granville Station are just some of the upgrades being delivered for Western Sydney under the Transport Access Program.
