Transport for NSW and TAFE NSW have agreed to terms to transfer a parcel of land adjacent to Hornsby Train Station for a new commuter car park.
The proposed car park which will be located on Jersey Street will help reduce parking pressure at the station.
Currently additional places are available for commuters at the Hornsby Westfield and will continue to be available to use free of charge.
The proposed project will help ensure that a commuter car park is available prior to the expiration of the current Transport for NSW lease from Westfield in 2021.
State Member for Hornsby, Matt Kean, said “Hornsby station is a transport hub and it is vital we have enough parking to support those commuters travelling on the train from Hornsby.
I have been able to secure funding to see the Asquith train station car park open last year and now this additional parking for Hornsby station. I will continue to fight for more commuter parking at all stations in the Shire.”
There will be an opportunity for customers and the community to have their say on the proposed commuter parking during the planning process this year.
