New car parking is on the way for Bendigo line passengers.
An extra 100 car spaces will be added at the Gisborne station in an extension and upgrade to the existing gravel carpark on the north side of the tracks.
At Kyneton station, 50 car spaces will be added in a new carpark proposed for the west of the existing carpark on the north side of the tracks.
An extra 50 car park spaces will be added at Riddells Creek station in a new carpark proposed for the west of the existing carpark on land not currently being used.
The projects will also deliver additional accessible car parks, bicycle parking and increased safety and security with CCTV and lighting covering the carparks.
The projects are being delivered by transport service VicTrack through the state government’s Car Parks and Commuters program. All projects are in the planning stage.
Concept designs for the projects have also been developed and residents can have their say on the plans by completing an online survey until 5pm on Wednesday, March 31.
Macedon MP Mary-Anne Thomas said the improvements will make it easier for locals to catch a train.
“This is the second time we have increased car parking at Gisborne and Kyneton stations and these projects respond to the fact that over recent years more and more people have been catching the train on the Bendigo line.”
