Construction of a new car park off Castlereagh Road in Penrith is now underway. Once complete, the carpark will hold 126 new parking spaces.
Stuart Ayres MP, Member for Penrith said the new car park between the Nepean District Tennis Association’s facilities and Penrith train station will support customers who are accessing destinations in the Penrith CBD and commuters.
“This is an important development which will help take pressure off the demand for parking in Penrith,” Mr Ayres said.
“This project is just one example of the continued investment in Penrith by the Perrottet Government.”
The upgrade will include earthwork, stormwater drainage, kerb and gutter, pavement work, signposting, line marking, footpaths, lighting, CCTV installation and landscaping as well as some minor safety work.
This project is being delivered as part of the upgrade of Mulgoa Road between Glenmore Parkway and Museum Drive, which will support current and future traffic demands and expected growth in the area.
Construction of the carpark will create 50 jobs and is expected to be complete by the end of 2022.
