More than 250 additional car parks will soon be available for Lawnton commuters.
The Palaszczuk Government has this week started detailed design on the $10.4 million upgrade, which will expand the existing Butcher Avenue and Ebert Parade commuter car park.
Member for Kurwongbah Shane King said once complete, there would be more than 400 car parks available for local commuters.
“This is about giving commuters more options to get to their local station, whether that’s catching a bus, riding a bike, walking or parking the car,” Mr King said.
“After recently securing the park ‘n’ ride expansion site, design consultants are now getting stuck into maximising the space for commuters.”
Design is expected to be complete by the end of the year.
Member for Pine Rivers Nikki Boyd said the project would also include CCTV, lighting, landscaping, pedestrian crossing facilities and accessible parking bays.
“As a local I know just how popular Lawnton station is, which is why the Palaszczuk Government is getting on with the job of delivering more park ‘n’ ride facilities,” Ms Boyd said.
“It’s part of the Palaszczuk Government’s $114 million commitment to deliver park ‘n’ ride upgrades across the South East and adds to major rail projects in the region like the Strathpine and Dakabin station upgrades.”
