Community feedback is being sought about the upgrade of parking facilities at Watergardens station.

As part of the state government’s car parks for commuters program, the Watergardens station is being upgraded.

​This includes 485 new and upgraded car spaces, more accessible parking, lighting, CCTV, bicycle facilities and landscaping.

The project, which is occurring near the corner of Sydenham and Kings roads.

Works will start later this year and will be completed in late 2024.

The project team is looking for feedback on any aspect of the car park project including design considerations, management measures for any potential impacts, or any other relevant matters.

All feedback received will be included in a public consultation summary report and this report will inform the Minister for Planning’s assessment of the project.

The upgrades come following 92 new spaces being created alongside Sydenham Road last year in a state government and Brimbank council partnership.

Commuters have long called for more car parks and safety upgrades at the station.

This project is being delivered by the Level Crossing Removal Project and is funded by the Victorian government’s Car Parks for Commuters Program and the Australian Government’s Urban Congestion Fund.

Consultation is open until April 3.
