Stations get more parking

More than 300 new car parking spaces will be built across Macedon, Clarkefield and Woodend stations in an effort to make it quicker and easier to drive to the station and catch the train.

Macedon MP Mary-Anne Thomas said the state government will deliver up to 110 new carparks at Macedon station, 50 new spaces at Clarkefield station, and seal and mark 200 spaces at Woodend as well as 40 new spaces at Gisborne and 100 new spaces at Kyneton.

New electronic pedestrian crossings will also be installed at station crossings in Kyneton and Clarkefield, as part of the Safer Country Crossings program.

“These new spaces will reduce the daily scramble to get a park and make it quicker, easier and safer to drive to the station and catch the train,” Ms Thomas said.

“We have listened to locals and now we’re delivering the day-to-day upgrades that will make a real difference for people across the Macedon Ranges – better connecting them to work, education and each other.”

The carpark upgrades are part of the government’s road and rail minor works program that aims to increase carparks, build more comfortable waiting areas and better passenger information at train stations across rural and regional Victoria.
