New car parking bays open at Whitfords

Transport Minister Simon O’Brien and Kingsley MLA Andrea Mitchell have welcomed the addition of 210 new parking bays at Whitfords Train Station.

Mr O’Brien said the Liberal-National Government was pleased to be fulfilling its commitment to build 3,000 new parking bays at train stations along the Mandurah and Joondalup lines at a cost of $49.5million. 
 
“In the lead up to the last election I pledged that if elected, the Liberal-National Government would ensure more parking bays were built at Perth’s suburban train stations,” he said.
 
“The State Government, with the help of local Members of Parliament like Andrea Mitchell is delivering on that pledge - with an extra 210 new bays successfully installed at Whitfords.
 
“The station’s carpark will now hold 908 vehicles, an overall increase of 30 per cent.
 
“Another 170 bays are currently under construction at Greenwood station.”
 
Ms Mitchell welcomed the new bays and said the enhanced parking facilities would greatly assist those who currently battle daily for the existing number of parking spots.
 
“I am acutely aware of the pressures that are currently being placed on the station’s parking infrastructure,” she said.
 
“That is why I have been working with the Minister to ensure that stations in my electorate get their fair share of new parking bays.”
 
Mr O’Brien said the new bays were built in a new area to the north of the existing carpark.
 
“The work also includes building an underpass link to the existing car park and the installation of lighting and CCTV monitoring,” he said.
 
A secure parking shelter for 18 bikes will be added to the station later this year.
