Construction works will recommence soon on new commuter parking on Junction Road, in Winston Hills to provide more than 100 much needed car parking spaces for people using the bus services along the M2 motorway.
Hills Shire Mayor, Michelle Byrne said: “Easy, safe and convenient parking not only benefits those who drive part of their journey to access the bus services, it’s also an incentive to use public transport.”
She said the work will create 60 jobs across a variety of fields.
Parramatta City Lord Mayor Bob Dwyer said the car park was going to make “a big difference” for many residents who have long been asking for more safe and convenient commuter park area in Winston Hills.
State Member for Seven Hills, Mark Taylor MP said he was pleased to see the carpark – an NSW Government election commitment – being delivered for the Winston Hills community.
“More car park spaces means better access to M2 buses for all commuters,” Mr Taylor added.
The Hills Shire Council is delivering the new spaces, drainage and footpaths upgrades as part of a $2.5 million NSW Government grant.
So far, the detailed design is complete and preliminary site works have commenced.
Meanwhile, community consultation was completed by the City of Parramatta Council, as the adjoining residents reside within their Local Government Area (LGA).
During construction, there will be no parking on either side of Junction Road, between Romulus Street and Hillcrest Avenue. Alternate parking is available nearby.
