CAR PARK AND INTERCHANGE ON THE WAY FOR GRANVILLE





CAR PARK AND INTERCHANGE ON THE WAY FOR GRANVILLE

Construction of the new car park and interchange project at Granville Station is on track to begin this year, Minister for Transport Gladys Berejiklian said today.

Ms Berejiklian and Granville MP Tony Issa today inspected the site of the new car park, where site investigation work has recently been completed.

Ms Berejiklian said the Granville commuter car park and transport interchange project includes an upgraded bus interchange, including enhancements to station access from the bus interchange, new toilets and approximately 40 additional commuter car parking spaces.

“These improvements will make it easier for customers to drive or catch a bus to Granville to access train services,” Ms Berejiklian said.

“Transport for NSW recently completed crucial investigative works at the site of the existing bus interchange which was part of the work to finalise designs for the project.

“The Granville commuter car park and transport interchange project is being delivered as part of $770 million Transport Access Program, a NSW Government initiative to deliver modern, safe and accessible transport infrastructure where it is most needed.”

The site investigations involved drilling 11 boreholes and undertaking a geotechnical analysis of the samples. Subject to planning approval, construction of the project is expected to begin later this year and will be ready to be used by customers next year.

Mr Issa said the project will benefit thousands of local commuters.

“I am really pleased by the significant investment the NSW Government is making in Granville and I can’t wait to see the car park and interchange constructed and in use,” he said.

“The improvements at Granville Station are reminiscent of a number of upgrades being undertaken right across Western Sydney.”

The NSW Government is also working on a complete re-write of the train timetable which will deliver more services from October this year.
