Planning work is well underway for a new car park at Hurstville station, which will deliver additional car spaces for rail commuters as part of mixed-use development.

The NSW Government will seek expressions of interest in the coming months from developers to purchase the site at 311-313 Forest Road, Hurstville. As a condition of the sale, the purchaser of the site will be required to construct a commuter car park as part of the proposed development, subject to planning approval.

Federal Minister for Communications, Urban Infrastructure, Cities and the Arts, the Hon Paul Fletcher MP, said that the Morrison Government committed to additional commuter car parking spaces in Hurstville through the Urban Congestion Fund.

“The Morrison Government is getting on with delivering infrastructure projects that improve congestion and safety for commuters across Australia, making it easier for them to move around our capital cities and ensuring they get home quickly and safely,” Minister Fletcher said.

“This is just the latest example of us delivering on our commitment to progress critical infrastructure projects across the country under our record $110 billion, 10-year infrastructure investment pipeline, which is helping to drive Australia’s economic recovery.”

New South Wales Minister for Transport and Veterans, the Hon David Elliott MP, said the project complemented the NSW Government’s Commuter Car Park Program.

“Our aim is to provide commuters with greater public transport options while also helping to ease congestion on our roads,” Mr Elliott said.

Federal Member for Banks, the Hon David Coleman MP, said the development would deliver significant benefits for the community.

“While Hurstville is already a thriving centre, it is important to continue to support critical infrastructure that generates jobs and boosts economic activity and community benefit. This new mixed use development will not only provide locals with greater access to parking, it will also provide further community benefits through the new mixed-use space,” Mr Coleman said.
