This project is expected to construct up to 500 commuter car park spaces at Berwick Railway Station, on the Pakenham Line in south-east Melbourne. The project will include associated works such as bicycle parking, station accessibility improvements, station security, lighting improvements and station precinct amenity improvements. The project also includes the construction of temporary relief commuter car parking at Officer Railway Station.
The existing Berwick Railway Station car park is split between the north and south of the station and contains over 1,000 sealed commuter parking spaces. The station is located in a high residential area with commercial, health, educational and industrial connections to the south.
The project is expected to increase the capacity of the park and ride facilities at Berwick Railway Station and support public transport usage.
