Transport Minister Simon O’Brien and South Metropolitan Region MLC Phil Edman have welcomed the addition of 90 new parking bays at Warnbro Railway Station.
Mr. O’Brien said the Liberal-National Government was pleased to be fulfilling its commitment to build 3,000 new parking bays at railway stations along the Mandurah and Joondalup lines at a cost of $49.5 Million.
“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 Railway Stations.” the Minister said.
“The State Government, with the help of local Members of Parliament like Phil Edman is delivering on that pledge with an extra 90 new bays successfully constructed at Warnbro Railway Station.”
“The construction also included increased lighting, CCTV and landscaping.”
“The station’s car park will now hold 800 vehicles.” Mr. O’ Brien said.
Mr. Edman 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.” Mr. Edman said.
“That is why I have been working with the Minister to ensure that stations in the region I represent get their fair share of new Parking Bays.”
