Stuart Ayres MP, Member for Penrith today invited customers to provide feedback on proposed designs to build a new commuter car park at Penrith, as planning documents were placed on public display.
The NSW Government will deliver an additional 350 commuter car parking spaces for customers as part of the Transport Access Program through a new multi-storey car park on Lord Sheffield Circuit.
“This project is a prime example of a Government who understands local needs and stops at nothing to deliver improvements that will make a real difference for customers,” Stuart Ayres said.
“The boost in parking at Penrith Station will go a long way in making access to public transport easier for customers.
“I encourage all interested members of the community to view the plans and provide feedback – this is a great opportunity to have your say on the development of your local station.”
All feedback received during the exhibition period will be considered in the development of the design.
The Review of Environmental Factors (REF) outlines details of the proposed new car park, the potential project impacts and how these will be managed.
The REF is on public display at the following locations:
· Transport Community Information Centre, 388 George Street, Sydney (enter on King Street)
· Penrith City Council, 601 High Street, Penrith
· Penrith City Library, 207 Queen Street, St Marys
Feedback must be received by 5pm, Monday 20 June 2016 and can be sent to:

This work is being delivered under the Transport Access Program, a NSW Government initiative to deliver modern, safe and accessible transport infrastructure.
Penrith customers have been major beneficiaries of the Program, with a major station upgrade already underway.
The Penrith Station Upgrade includes new lifts and stairs to the platforms, an upgraded station concourse, improved bus, taxi, and kiss and ride areas, and upgrades to lighting and CCTV.
More than 50 car spaces were recently reopened for Penrith customers near the corner of Jane Street and Castlereagh Road, following work to resurface the existing gravelled area and install new lighting, fencing and drainage.
Since the Transport Access Program began in April 2012, more than 450 projects are underway or have been completed.
