Extra parking opened at Cockburn Central station

Parking at Cockburn Central station has been boosted by 210 permanent bays.

Transport Minister Simon O’Brien and Jandakot MLA Joe Francis attended the car park this morning to see peak hour commuters take advantage of the new bays, which had been promised before the last State Election.

“The State Government originally planned 210 permanent bays and these have been delivered,” Mr O’Brien said.

“In addition, 144 temporary bays have been added after the Public Transport Authority negotiated a lease of private land abutting the station parking area.

“These will be designated as a daytime parking area because they do not have full lighting. They will help meet demand until Stage 2 of the project, which will provide another 400 extra bays, is delivered next year.”

The work is part of the Government’s promised $49million car park expansion project on the Mandurah and Joondalup lines.

Mr Francis said the Government recognised that increased access to parking at stations was a key deciding factor when people considered their transport options.

“I’m pleased that we have been able to offer these additional bays to Cockburn Central station users, and effectively move more than 350 extra cars off the road,” he said.

“The additional parking brings to 950 the total number of bays available at Cockburn Central.”
