Commuters at the Springfield Central Station may now enjoy more convenience following the opening of the multi-storey mega Park ‘n’ Ride that can accommodate at least 1,100 customers.

The $44.5 million investment has more than doubled the previous car parking available at the station, which boasts five levels. This means more commuters may now park and then take public transportation to get to their appointments. 

The said investment is also expected to ease traffic congestion as Springfield continues to grow as commuters will be on more trains and buses whilst their car is safely parked at the facility. 

“This new, multi-storey park ‘n’ ride has sustainable and innovative design features such as recycled aluminium in the building façade and the ability to accommodate another parking level in the future if required,” Transport and Main Roads Minister Mark Bailey said. 

“In addition to elevator access and CCTV within the facility, 24 sheltered parking spaces for people with a disability have been created in the existing park ‘n’ ride closer to the station off Sir Llew Edwards Drive.” 

Member for Jordan Charis Mullen also welcomed the opening of the Springfield Central Station Park ‘n’ Ride as it will remove illegal parking around the station. 

“With this volume of spaces available, I hope to see even more people through our community take advantage of the convenience of public transport for their travel,” Ms Mullen said.

“Access to the station has also been improved through a new signalised pedestrian crossing providing customers access across the Springfield Greenbank Arterial.

“The new multi-level facility will bring the total number of spaces to around 1100 across the precinct, and will make a big difference in the everyday lives of commuters in Springfield and beyond.”
