Campbelltown MP Greg Warren has condemned the Minister for Transport, Andrew
Constance, for failing to acknowledge and resolve the commuter car parking crisis
engulfing Campbelltown train stations.
Mr Warren recently asked a series of questions on notice including: whether the NSW
Liberals plan to build more commuter car parking spaces at Campbelltown, Leumeah or
Macarthur train stations; and for details regarding any plans, including timelines.
Instead of answering the questions, the Minister simply said “I refer you to the previous
response, LA Q3747” – a previous series of questions on notice put to the Minister by
Mr Warren said the people of Campbelltown deserved a much better answer.
“Every commuter who drives to a local a train station knows just how diabolical the
parking situation is,” Mr Warren said.
“More and more people are calling Campbelltown and Camden home which means the
demand being placed on our local public transport network – particularly out train
stations – continues to rise.
“Minister Constance is fully aware of the commuter car parking crisis at Campbelltown
train stations, yet he has failed to do anything about it.
“Let’s not forget it was Premier Gladys Berejiklian, in her capacity as Minister for
Transport, who promised to build 450 commuter car parking spaces at Campbelltown
Train Station prior to the 2015 election.
“And it was Minister Constance who officially broke that promise in 2018.
“The people of Campbelltown deserve much, much more from the NSW Liberals and
the Minister for Transport.”
